Boomkat product review for:

robert turman - Flux

Spectrum Spools delves into the distant past – well, 1981 – for its latest tranmission, a reissue of the debut album by revered multi-instrumentalist / avant-garde operator Robert Turman. Turman first came to cult prominence as a member of Boyd Rice’s NON, before going on to enjoy a sporadic solo career that has taken in DAF/Normal-style electronics (Way Down) and superior noise outings (Blizzard, with Aaron Dilloway). Flux, which Turman self-released on cassette, is a one-off – a patient investigation of classical minimalism and new age tropes, an attempt to create “a complex bed of interweaving micro-stasis” with kalimba, piano, drum machine, and tape loops. The results are certainly sparse and meditative, but they’re also deeply engaging, and occasionally unsettling. We’re particularly into ‘Flux 4’, its marriage of plaintive piano and cotton-wool wrapped kickdrum coming over like a precursor to the Miasmah label or those early Dettinger records on Kompakt. Remastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates + Mastering from the original c-60 cassette master and pressed on vinyl for the first time, this is the definitive edition of a very special work.
