Ali Perret and Graham Haynes will perform an electro-acoustic concert in response to the life and work of Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin, who once managed Perret’s band acid trippin. The performance will explore the concepts of mind and money, friendship and relations, pleasure and pain, creativity and depression, genuine and kitsch, motivation and politics, and life and death.

Ali Perret’s methods of writing and playing music explore genres ranging from contemporary orchestral to electro-acoustic. He has founded bands including Istanbul Jazz Quartet (1985-1990), acid trippin (1995-2003), Mingus-Trippin (2000), Free’key Trio (2004), Ali Perret’s Nonetonal Quartet (2008), Schalterego (2009) and The Barbarians (2010), and has performed and realized projects in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Turkey.

Graham Haynes is an instrumentalist, producer and composer who has created new dimensions of textural and tonal qualities with the cornet, flugelhorn, Tibetan trumpet and 21st century digital equipment. With a sound and musical philosophy extending from the ‘70s jazz-rock, jazz-funk fusion era, Haynes’ music is a testament to the evolution of African-Arabic-Electronica as a distinct musical genre.
