Robert Turman Robert Turman, an experimental, noise, and industrial musician originally from San Diego, California, quietly put out a handful of obscure tape releases throughout the 1980's. Turman first came onto the industrial scene in the late 70's as the ominous 'other half' of the legendary noise outfit NON, alongside Boyd Rice, and together they collaborated on the now classic 1977 single 'Mode of Infection' / 'Knife Ladder'. Shortly after, Turman parted ways with Rice to pursue his own unique vision as a solo artist, fusing together every possible influence at his disposal and laying those ideas down on numerous self-released cassettes like Flux (1981) and the prolific Chapter Eleven (1988) cassette box set. Turman's most original work, Way Down, came in 1987. It was a creation that utilized synthesizer arrangements and drum machines alongside guitar solos, piano chords, tape loops, and primitive sampling to create a whole new brand of danceable minimal synth blended perfectly together with the industrial darkwave noise he was mostly known for. After vanishing from the music scene in the late 80's, Turman resurfaced in 2005 and teamed up with seminal noise musician Aaron Dilloway to write and perform new material. After Turman and Dilloway put out several split releases together with Hanson and Medusa Records, Turman joined with Dais in 2010 to re-issue Way Down, which had previously fallen into tape label obscurity, but has now been made available once again for a new generation of listeners for the first time ever on vinyl.

Robert Turman Way Down LP Originally released as a small run cassette in 1987, only to fall into tape label obscurity, Robert Turman's industrial genre-bending masterpiece album Way Down finally has been excavated for a proper vinyl reissue after twenty-three years in the shadows. This album solidifies Turman as a cut above the rest with respect to his talent and his natural ear for experimental composition. Turman first came onto the industrial scene in the late 70s as the ominous other half of legendary noise outfit NON, alongside Boyd Rice, together releasing the now classic first NON single, Mode of Infection/Knife Ladder 7? in 1977. After parting ways, Turman went on an excursion of self-released cassettes to which he fused every possible influence at his disposal, culling together past habits of experimental know-how and going forward into uncharted terrain. After his previous experimental efforts included on his Flux release in 1981, and even later in the prolific Chapter Eleven boxset, Turman turned the tables with the creation of Way Down, using synthesizer arrangements and drum machines alongside guitar solos, piano chords, tape loops and primitive sampling to create a whole new concoction of dance-like minimal synth blended together with the industrial darkwave noise he was mostly known for. After almost vanishing from the music scene, Turman resurfaced in 2005, teaming up with seminal noise musician Aaron Dilloway to not only reissue previous recordings, but to record and perform once again with new releases out on Hanson and Medusa.

Robert Turman - Way Down LP (Dais)
Co-founding member of Non and current collaborator with Wolf Eyes, Robert Turman is a name few likely recognize at this stage, the majority of his works languishing in shoeboxes filled with cassettes or in the hands of tape-culture collectors. His 1987 release Way Down makes for a really great record that exemplifies the sounds of the industrial/loner ethos from that period - primitive drum loop bash, synth funnels, and the indelible appeal of the modern primitive rivethead are all over this one, with engaging and even danceable results; cold, but not too dark, with a reliance on melody not expected from this area of music.
