Lettow / Erel Duo is Gunnar Lettow (prepared electric bass, objects, electronics) and Korhan Erel (computer, controllers). Lettow and Erel build a fragile, fascinating, abstract sound world with Gunnar’s electro-acoustic sounds and Korhan’s electronically treated field recordings and found sounds. They have been playing in Germany every November since their first-time meeting in Istanbul in 2011.
In their third-installment of November concerts in Germany since 2011, they will be playing at Oberdeck in Hannover on November 7 and at Freitagsmusik in Hamburg on November 8 as a part of Frequenzgänge concert series. In Hamburg, guitarist Christoph Funabashi will join the duo in their second set.
Lettow / Erel will also play two concerts in Berlin in January 2014 with Liz Allbee and Chris Heenan at Sowieso on Jan 10, and with Audrey Chen at Miss Hecker on Jan 12. Please see Upcoming Concerts for more performances by Korhan Erel.
