Istanbul-based free improvisation ensemble Islak Köpek curates bi-monthly evenings of freely improvised music at Gitar Cafe where they invite several musicians. This month, guest musicians are Sumru Ağıryürüyen (voice), acclaimed new music pianist Seda Röder and myself. As some of you may know, I have taken a sabbatical from Islak Köpek, which I co-founded in 2005, to focus on other projects – the reason I am a guest instead of a member.

Islak Köpek are

Şevket Akıncı (acoustic guitar)
Gülşah Erol (cello)
Giray Gürkal (electric guitar, effects)
Volkan Terzioğlu (tenor saxophone)
Robert Reigle (tenor saxophone) – Robert may still be stranded in the US because of a visa problem. We don’t know if he is back
Sumru Ağıryürüyen (voice)
Seda Röder (piano)
Korhan Erel (computer, controllers)

Music starts at 9pm and will cost you 10 lira. Gitar Cafe has a great, cosy atmosphere as well as good snacks and drinks.
