WHITE WINGED MOTH - Ribbon Arcade

"Recorded in early 1998, this album is the first wide release by this project since the album released in '96 on Poon Village. The solo project of Dean Roberts,this album is a radical departure from his solo album of last year 'Moth Park' and a developmental progression on ideas hinted at on previous albums and in his work with the band Thela. Recorded in digital,this album explores dynamic editing and assemblage of improvisational material generated via percussion,prepared guitars,cello and micro to macro electro acoustic audio worlds. A cohesive example of the melding of preparation and improvisation,the thematic flow of this detailed sound design is shrouded in the magnetic electric glow and florescent tone color that make Roberts' recordings some of the most defined and singular explorations coming out of New Zealand or anywhere. The cyclical arrangements glide through shifts defined by long and lingering tones,cross-fades/edits to squalls of Cello to subdued guitar and percussion. Spatial dynamics and sound fidelity dominate. This work aggressively re-defines/re-assesses the shapes and forms of an audio language that is truly unique. While Ribbon Arcade is White Winged Moth's master opus of self definition, it is also a extreme departure from previous work and suggests a great new world of possibilities in new and un-tapped realms of sound." --Phillip Browne" - Formacentric Disk (New Zealand).

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.
