Improvisational performance project Konjo continues its series of collaborative concerts with composer and musicologist Alper Maral.

Konjo trio is formed by Şevket Akıncı, Orçun Baştürk and Sumru Ağıryürüyen, bringing their experience in diverse musical genres and years of experimentation with various styles and forms to the project. These musicians generate improvised compositions which evolve from the intersection points of many traditions of music – from Central Asian melodies to blues, from spoken word and krautrock to the nuances of modal (maqam) music.

Alper Maral is known for his predominantly electroacoustic chamber music compositions, and theater and film soundtracks, which usually have a dramaturgic arc and originate from the relational understanding of “culture within music – music within culture.”

This performance will take place as part of Long Thursday.
