"Robert Turman is an American sound artist known for his innovative and experimental works in the fields of ambient and minimalism. He entered the world of experimental music in the mid-1970s, particularly with minimalists such as Steve Reich and Terry Riley. Inspired by the work of Liszt composers, he began experimenting with tape loops and other forms of sound manipulation.

Robert Turman's first solo work, the cassette album FLUX (1981), is a landmark work in ambient and minimalism.Comprised of slowly repeating and evolving sounds made from a combination of tape loops, piano, electronics and other instruments, the album was praised for its innovation and atmosphere.It still enjoys a cult following among experimental music lovers.

John Wiese is a sound artist and composer based in Cleveland, Ohio and Los Angeles, California.He is known for his unique and innovative approach to sound and his ability to create complex, layered compositions that blur all boundaries.

I was.

Robert Turman and John Wiese's approach to composition is both experimental and post-improvisational.Based on specific sounds and textures, their collaboration evolves and develops in unexpected ways from beginning to end through a process of constant experimentation and exploration of new possibilities while making various modifications to the sounds. I will continue.Together, they continue to create immersive, otherworldly passages that upend our perceptions of space, time, and reality. "

Wiese's early recordings incorporated elements of cut-up/collage, musique concrete, and electronics. He often used unconventional sources to create chaotic, improvised compositions. As he developed as a composer and performer, Wiese began to incorporate more electronic and processed elements into his work, creating intense, multilayered works that retained the rawness, precision, and complexity.

Turman and Wiese's approach to composition is both experimental and post-improvisational. Building on a particular sound or texture, and using a variety of modifications to the sound, a process of constant experimentation and exploration into new possibilities allows their collaboration to evolve and develop in unexpected ways throughout. Together, they continue to create immersive and otherworldly paths that challenge our perceptions of space, time, and reality."
