Ho.Turner “T.V. Tapes Mix”

15.00

“Ho. Turner classified his sound work as «Hot. Noise» and «Fake Etno», as «Tekknoterrapheutic». He used the term «Syn Shaman» – possibly alluding to himself, being drawn to psychedelic drugs, Tibetan mysticism and shamanism. Most of his solo sound experiments were recorded on simple consumer cassette players in the early 1980s. The Lo-Fi quality did not matter to him as long as it was possible to be active, to do something, to expand, attract, tune in. Ho. Turner had claimed to be hearing impaired, but did not use his hearing aid. After Ho’s death in 2012, and actually on Ho’s posthumous request, German artist Marc Behrens started to restore and release some of Turner’s sound work.

«T.V. Tapes Mix» is a mixtape with the exact sequence of untitled tracks as recorded by the artist at some point in the first half of the 1980s with a tiny cassette recorder over a home speaker system. For this mix he compiled material from his handmade «T.V. Tapes» editions. «T.V.» stands for «Taube Völker» (deaf peoples), not for «television».

Music composed and recorded on Compact Cassettes between ca. 1979 and 1983 by Ho. Turner (1948–2012), using the Kawai Synthesizer-100F, the Fricke MFB-501 drum ­machine, Tibetan bells and other metal percussion, a flight simulator, field recordings and found sounds.

Restored, edited and mastered by Marc Behrens 2016. Produced by NBIDE and Marc Behrens 2016.” – Marc Behrens

The third posthumous album by this space trucker driving on the far-left of all things Kraut comes in a polyester relic depicting Ho.’s hearing aid horror. Limited to 65 hand-numbered copies.
