|Robert Turman: Beyond Painting 2xLP FABREC020
Recently reissued by Fabrica Records, Robert Turman’s “Beyond Painting” is a stunning piece of work. Originally recorded in 1990 but not released until 2010, this melancholic epic is rich in deep, languorous tones that enmesh the listener in a web of creepy and affecting sonics. more – price includes shipping
|Robert Turman: Flux 2xLP Spectrum Spools SP010
Recorded following Turman’s brief stint in NON (with Boyd Rice), and self-released on cassette in 1981, Flux represented something of a departure from the American multi-instrumentalist’s noisier early work. For this project, Turman adopted the palette and strategies of a minimalist composer, working with kalimba, piano, drum machine and tape loops to create, according to a press release, “a complex bed of interweaving micro-stasis”. The tracks have been re-mastered and cut from Turman’s C-60 cassette master by Rashad Becker for Spectrum Spools’ new 2xLP or CD edition, which is housed in a sleeve design derived from the original artwork.

Robert Turman – Artistic Spectrum Disorder – Actual CD002 – SOLD OUT
Brand new, 69 minutes of music. 23 copies only. Recorded over several sessions in December 2012, using source material and field recordings accumulated over the past 30 years, the result is a trip through the depths of the overactive mind. The three 23-minute dreamlike sequences can be listened to as a whole, or taken one at a time, or choose random and repeat and let it play continuously. This is music not to be taken lightly: turn on your mind, relax and float downstream. For best listening enjoyment, please play very loud, or with headphones.
The cover graphics are corruptions of the Spectrum Spools logo, layered with subliminal images. Each cover is different and each CD is individually laser etched with a slightly different design. CDR comes packaged in a black folded sleeve. This title is limited to 23 copies only. All are signed and numbered.

“There’s a ringing in my ears. The left is flickering, picking up the faint sounds of the world reanimating. The right, well it may be out of commission. It’s stuck on an infinite loop, the cochlea a grinding chuff but of little use. This explosion of industrial sound; the rattle of war as brothers once bonded by peace are now torn asunder by mistrust and obstructed by smoke. It’s attrition and though my right ear may never regain its strength, its pulsations are comfort at night in a camp as hollow and horrific as one can imagine. There are the noises of the dying. There are the cries of the weak. There are the beasts of the wild, men turned feral by what man has sown. But the gears are still churning. Their relentless clank never letting up. We clock in, poise our bayonets, and wait for the howl and stampede of 10,000 high-heeled boots. It’s all just a beat to the docile ringing in my ear. We fight because we have stayed loyal to Robert Turman, his anarchistic music breaking us away from the savages of a world too eager to conform. It began at a nameless award ceremony, the hapless pop starlet engorged by fame exploding across the crowded theater. Now we fight off the beasts of celebrity, starved for the relevance and power taken away by wantonness. The music machine still quacks but we stand in the trenches, hands full of Macro to blast back the pack before we’re all callously swallowed by fashion police and paparazzi.” – Justin Spicer (Tiny Mix Tapes)
Limited to 100 pro-dubbed copies with full color j-card.
