Robert Turman began making sound experiments in the early ’70s 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 ’70s he co-founded NON (along with Boyd Rice), but left shortly after the release of the Mode of Infection / Knife Ladder 7" to focus on composing and releasing his own music on homemade limited edition (and now extremely rare) cassette tapes. Robert has collaborated with art rockers FZ13, post-apocalyptic industrialists Z.O. Voider, and more recently Aaron Dilloway (Wolf Eyes, Nevari Butchers), Neon Depth and Jandek.  Beyond Painting, with its 72 minutes of haunting lo-fi ambience, is probably one of Robert's most accomplished recordings. Layers of meditative synth loops, guitar, and eastern-tinged melodies, all beautifully delayed, bring to mind blistering desert landscapes, high-tension Cold-War-era spy action sequences, and dark cavernous sounds. Originally recorded in 1990, these tracks did not see the light of day until 2010 when they were self released on a limited run of 100 professionally printed and duplicated CD-Rs. Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk (Mississippi Records, Sublime Frequencies, Grouper, Wooden Shjips, Yellow Swans) at Stereophonic Mastering.
