False Wall Magic

Next on our list of past releases comes from the chilling confines of deep Alaska. The duo False Wall Magic brew a strange occult mixture of nature and darkness using only hand-built instruments, for an uncommon sound. Released in 2003 and limited to a mere 23 copies. SOLD OUT


Over the next month we will be documenting past Turm Ogive releases, beginning with this gem from 2002. Willing is a band/project from Finland that strains avant-garde miasma metallics through the lens of Tarkovsky's 'Stalker'. Packing designed and hand-assembled by the artist(s). Limited run of 48. SOLD OUT.

We are proud to announce that our next release will be a limited edition CD of material from 80's experimental unit Man's On Control.
The members of M.O.C. are pouring through surviving recordings and inform us that the comprehensive CD will include live material as well as studio manipulations and cut-ups. The latter were originally accomplished via two-track cassette and reflect a rudimentary approach to sound manipulation and sampling. The live recordings demonstrate nascent sound makers gleefully disregarding prosaic notions of musicianship, spurred by spirits evoked by the Destroy All Music festival and (WREK)radio program of the time.
Man's On Control operated in Atlanta, Georgia from 1988-1990. No photographs or video recordings of the unit are known to exist.
