Boomkat Product Review:
Necessary 1st vinyl reissue of Robert Turman (ex-NON) & Aaron Dilloway ov Wolf Eyes’ pensive, pineal journey, Blizzard, presented by Brooklyn’s Fabrica 7 years since it originally appeared as a CDr on Dilloway’s Hanson Records.
Marking Turman’s return from extended hiatus since the late ‘80s, it’s a consolidation of generations of experimental, experienced noise and drone imagination; a contemporary masterclass in the art of suspense and deferred gratification, invoking imagery of turbulent weather systems and tortuous, malefic thoughts thru the steady, glacial layering of abstract, acousmatic sound into phantasmic apparitions that never quite reveal themselves, leaving you to occupy the void within.
Dilloway inhabits the synthesiser and tape delays, and Turman tapes and effects, placing the listener in the midst of a growing Blizzard with all the sensory grip that title calls to mind, or as they put it “very minimal, very slow, very cold. Frozen and stuck in the snow.”
