Classic long form minimalism from the now pretty legendary Robert Turman. This was originally released on cassette in 1981 and was brought back into the world by Spectrum Spools. It marked a departure from Turman's earlier noise/industrial-based work being a beautiful work made using an array of instruments including piano and tape loops.

This is sweet! It's a double LP reissue of a cassette that was originally released in 1981 in miniscule numbers for the masses of folks who bought cassettes back in the day. Perhaps more famous for the 'Non' Project with Boyd Rice, Turman has been making industrial avant-garde music for some time. On 'Flux' he felt like breaking the mold and indeed he has with four sides of sweet sounding music comprising of kalimba, piano, mini pops jr. drum machine and tape loops. It's a beautiful chilled sound he's created. It's very percussive though the whole thing is so minimal that you might just think of it as a collection of twinkles and chimes. It's a very sparse sounding record but one that takes you to another place and gives your mind chance to absorb the intricacies of what's going on. It's background atmospheric music but it's done so well that it ends up in the foreground. I'm pleased this has been reissued as I'd never have discovered it otherwise.
