RANALDO, LEE - Outside My Window The City Is Never Silent - A Bestiary

This compendium utilizes selected material from the following titles: Amarillo Ramp, The Bridge Deva, Spain; Fragments El Oido, first computer piece: the View From Here [Root (for TM)] Sudden Infant (remix) to Mary Walker Groves. Sounds by: Kim Gordon, William Hooker, Takehisa Kosugi, Alan Licht, David Linton, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, Jim ORourke, Lee Ranaldo, Sudden Infant, William Winant. The voices of: Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver, George Cowdery, Thom Degesu, Kim Gordon, Courtney Love, Thurston Moore, Cody Ranaldo, Lee Ranaldo, Leah Singer. You Are Everywhere And Nowhere, All At Once: the sounds of forgotten conversations, voices of loved ones, talks delivered via wire, crosscut with various tone poems (music(s)), with the hope of formulating new dream theories. You are listening to a conversation that took place in heaven, some time ago. This piece grows out of recent works I have been creating dealing with the phrases constructed from various recycled bits of voice and sound, the silences between them, and the cross-pollinations which occur as they are combined in different ways. The sound components have been gathered from across a large number of works Ive done through the years. I decided to use these bits and selections as the raw material from which to create a sort of (Esonic journal or notebook. In the last few years Ive done a few sound installations based around a set of fragments of voices which Ive collected, and most of these are drawn upon here. The voices are those of friends, family, and loved ones, and other artists, and although chosen for personal reasons, my hope is that the various voices will overlay to create a narrative of their own. This piece was originally created for a Belgian radio broadcast in 2000. - Lee Ranaldo.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
