In Singapore, the year 2015 will for evermore be remembered as "SG50" the state-led yearlong celebrations of Singapore's 50th year of independence, marked by scores of heritage projects, commemorative merchandise (SG50 fish cakes, anyone?), festivals and more. 2015 was also a big year for Marco Fusinato. The sound and visual artist was selected to exhibit at the prestigious Venice Biennale's headline international art exhibition, All the World's Futures. Right smack in the middle of his Venice stint, Fusinato's path intersected with that of Singapore's, as the Australian artist installed his first major solo exhibition, Constellations, at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (ICAS). This also brought Fusinato's by-now legendary Spectral Arrows series of performances to the city-state, which saw the artist in an improvised durational performance using guitar and electronics. This LP-length documentation captures the immense energy and emotions of the 8-hour performance, marked by passages of eviscerating noise, abrupt shifts of tact, and tension-filled silence. Recorded live at the ICAS in the same month of Singapore's national day and the culmination of SG50 festivities, Fusinato's performance mirrored, and yet shattered, the relentless noise of the city-state's yearlong golden jubilee celebrations. Locked grooves on both sides of this vinyl release mean that the audio can repeat ad infinitum.

Release:2013 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Drawing inspiration from the "Action Direct" expanded guitar performances of Masayuki Takayanagi, Fusinato places the guitar at the centre of his work. A few crudely played strings provide the impetus for a long chain of electronics which obliterate the original signal and leaves us with a hyper-kinetic wall of full frequency spectrum noise. Like the piano in David Tudor early 1960's performances of Cage's Variations II, in Fusinato's work, the guitar is the object of a dialectic of simultaneous adulation and annihilation. This LP presents 5 pieces demonstrating various possibilities of Fusinato's current interface between the guitar and electronics, from rapid-fire cut-ups that mimic the dynamics of classic musique concrète, to slowly building mass projections, in which layers of sound gradually rise to the surface, tussling for space at the top until they reach a near unbearable density. Presented mostly in crisp and detailed fidelity, one piece exploits the recording potential of the iPhone to achieve a harsh room-tone reminiscent of the works of Fusinato's comrade Bruce Russell. L'Origine/TEMA is Fusinato's most advanced work to date, moving beyond the startling juxtapositions of sound and silence found on his Spring Press LP to reach new dynamic complexities, new ambiguities between indeterminacy and intention, new relations between instrumental performance and its effacement. () Francis Plagne. Mastering: Casey Rice. Edition of 300 copies.
