Boomkat Product Review:
Heavily narcotic ambient soundscapes from the industrial ambient pioneer Robert Turman, realised for one of Zweikommaseiben's Surreal Sleep events in Zurich, 2016, and now melted to tape for home or headphone anaesthetisation
Simple in its gesture and wholly effective with it, Veiling Reflections convects some 60 minutes of curdling, plangent guitar strokes curling like smoke off a warbling bed of tarry bass, practically beating Dylan Carlson at his own slow game in the process.
By the mid-way point the lead instrumental voice almost imperceptibly pitch blends from guitar to a wistful cornet or brassier timbre (there’s no instrument credits to seen, though), marking a point of transition or sort of denouement like Lynch with his screen-piercing analogies, leading into deeper, murkier layers of introspection with an instinctively visual/sonic synaesthetic quality.
What we’re trying to say is this is some really seductive and expertly executed material, right up there with Norman Westberg’s recently relinquished solo meditations or a well timed xanax drop.
