Robert Turman - Chapter 11 4xCD Boxset (Hanson, 2021)
Highest recommendation. Not really noise, not really kraut, not really ambient, not really drone, not really soundtrack'y, not really anything, exactly...but sort of loosely all of those things in one focused yet ever-splintering box of bewitched experimentation. Wholly unique and low-key "fun" to listen to in almost every way, whatever mode it's in on any given part of any given disc. Just great shit all around. Already sold out from Hanson...
"Debuting in 1988 as a self-released 8xCassette boxset, Chapter Eleven collects the solo recordings (1976 - 1987) from one of the earliest members of the US Industrial Noise scene, coalescing a wide swath of influences and culling experimental techniques into inventive new terrain. Carefully remastered from the original tapes, this deluxe reissue is a long-awaited rescue from obscurity.
"Turman seemed to have taken over where the last of the great synth based kraut artists left off in the 70's, infusing the spiritual meditation music with his own brand of loop hypnosis, slowly moving drones, industrial patterns, guitar fuzz, and even some in-your-face 80's style synth work" - IMPOSE Magazine
