SALT Beyoğlu, Walk-in Cinema

Electro-acoustic beats II at SALT

The electro-acoustic performance series continues with “Erdem Helvacıoğlu Retrospective: 10 Years of Collaboration/Reinterpreted.”

Erdem Helvacıoğlu has been conducting performances in different venues on the occasion of his 10th anniversary of record production. In his performance at SALT Beyoğlu, Helvacıoğlu will perform an anthology from his past records that he played with local as well as international artists over the last 10 years. The performance will comprise a wide range of general sounds, from electro-acoustic stereo works to electronica, cinematographic compositions as well as free improvisations. Music will be diffused by surround ambient speakers that will enable the audience to spiritually enter into a world of voices that can also be described as “cinema for the ear.”

Helvacıoğlu is one of the most renowned contemporary composers of his generation in Turkey and has performed at various venues around the world. His music has been broadcast via major media players including the BBC, ABC, WDR and Radio France and his compositions have been included in some of the most internationally prestigious festivals. Recently Helvacıoğlu has been working on a new collaborative album with Nathan Larson and Nina Persson.

To conclude the “Electro-acoustic beats at SALT” series Tolga Tüzün will realize a performance on June 13.
