Robert Turman Way Down LP
...
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.

ROBERT TURMAN - FLUX
...
"Flux" is the 1981 debut solo outing of Robert Turman, an American multi-instrumentalist and avant-garde composer. Until recently, Turman was perhaps best known for his contributions to the ballistic NON project with Boyd Rice, as well as other obscured U.S. industrial acts such as Z.O. Voider.
...
In the summer of 1981 Turman decided he would take a drastic turn from the noisy/electronic/industrial work of his compatriots, and began work on what is now the classic "Flux" cassette. "Flux" was originally self-released in extremely limited numbers. Weary of the noisescapes of old, he set out to create long-form minimalism utilizing kalimba, piano, "Mini-Pops Jr." drum machine, and tape loops to create a complex bed of interweaving micro-stasis'. The results of these new experiments were as beautiful as they were perplexing. A curious dusty fidelity carries these classic tracks across four sides of vinyl, including all of the original "Flux" content. These compositions glow with a sprawling, slow motion haze that's light years ahead of its time. "Flux" reveals wide spectrums of sound from melancholic kalimba and percussion patterns to slowed down, syrupy Exotica. Turman had complex ideas in his mind yet only the simple technologies of the day were at hand.

ROBERT TURMAN - WAY DOWN
...
"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 23 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 70's 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 a 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 & drum machines along side guitar solos, piano chords, tape loops and primitive sampling to create a whole new concoction of dance-like minimal synth blended together his 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 & Medusa.

"Now on vinyl for the first time, one of Robert Turman's most cohesive and hypnotic recordings from circa 1990. Robert Turman began making sound experiments in the early 70's employing reel-to-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. Beyond Painting, with its 72 minutes of haunting lo-fi ambience, is probably one of Robert's most accomplished recordings so far.

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.
