Robert Turman

Beyond painting

Label: Fabrica Records

Format: Vinyl LPx2

Out of stock

Robert Turman began making sound experiments in the early 70's employing reel-ro-reel tape, cassette decks, arp synth, drum sequencers, multiple string and percussion instruments, and whatever else he could scavenge. In the late 70's he co-founded NON (along with Boyd Rice), but left shortly after the release of Mode of Infection/Knife Ladder 7' to focus on composing and releasing his own music on limited-edition, and now extremely rare, cassette tapes. Robert has collaborated with art rockers FZ13, post-apocalyptic industrialists Z.O. Voider, and more recently Aaron Dilloway, Neon Depth and Jandek. Beyond Painting, with its 72 minutes of haunting lo-fi ambience, is probably one of Robert's most accomplished recordings. Layers of meditative synth loops, guitar, and eastern tinged melodies, all beautifully delayed, bring to mind blistering desert landscapes, high-tension cold war era spy action sequences, and dark cavernous sounds. Originally recorded in 1990, these tracks did not see the light of day until 2010 when they were self released on a limited run of 100 professionally printed and duplicated CD-Rs. Beyond Painting follows in the footsteps of the recently reissued 'Flux' cassette on LP (Spectrum Spools). Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk (Mississippi Records, Sublime Frequencies, Grouper, Wooden Shjips, Yellow Swans) at Stereophonic Mastering. Edition of 500 on 140grm black vinyl in full-color gate-fold jack
