Korhan Erel played a solo set with his computer instrument Omnibus at Gram, one of the new alternative music venues in Kadıköy, Istanbul.
Omnibus is a collection of instruments designed in Ableton Live and Audiomulch by Korhan Erel. Korhan uses Omnibus to play ambient, electro-acoustic and free improvised music either as a solo artist or in collective performances, such as with Islak Köpek, Turkey’s pioneer free improvisation group he co-founded in 2005. He has been working on this instrument collection/performance system for more than a year. The instruments are played with various controllers including Nintendo Wii controllers, iPad, iPod, Novation Launchpad and Korg Nanokontrols. Omnibus uses Korhan’s field recordings, found sounds and sound designs as raw materials and manipulates them using granular, spectral and other means. It can also process external sound sources, such as acoustic instruments.
The recording of the concert is available here as a VBR MP3 file.
