ZAFFIRI, ENORE - Musica Per Un Anno

Musica Per Un Anno is a pivotal project by Italian pioneer of electronic music Enore Zaffiri. In 1968, Zaffiri devised a project to create music for each hour of the year, by providing precise instructions to organize various layers of sinusoidal sounds. Working in isolation but ideally sharing the same attitude of La Monte Youngs approach to sound in time and space of those same years, Zaffiri created some tape versions of his masterpiece. The version presented on this album is a radically pure digital implementation of one hour of Musica Per Un Anno, and has been realized by Andrea Valle in strict cooperation with Zaffiri, faithfully respecting the composers original, abstract project. - Magazgran. Enore Zaffiri on the composition: "Electronic music for the sonorization of environments. It is music in time, designed for the duration of one year. The sound event changes imperceptibly but continuously in relation to months, days, hours, minutes. Every moment has its own unique music that blends with the light and the surrounding atmosphere. It is a presence. It is a music that should not impose itself, that should not distract or daze, that should not force the user to immobility. Being music in time, without beginning or end, it is always important at any time you want to listen to. It is a music that responds to the needs of the contemporary man that, while visiting an exhibition or a museum, absorbs multiple experiences addressing appropriately and actively the cultural needs of our time." - Mazagran.

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.
