Concerts and exhibition in January 2015

cropped-ozl_5929.jpgFollowing the long break without concerts in December, Korhan Erel will be playing many concerts in January and February in Germany and Istanbul. The concerts will begin with an interesting quartet with many first-time meetings at Miss Hecker on Friday, January 9. Korhan will improvise with three musicians who have never played with each other before: Michael Thieke on clarinets, Uygur Vural on cello, and Emilio Gordoa on prepared vibraphone. Korhan has played numerous times with Uygur Vural, his close friend and compatriate from the Istanbul free improvisation scene, and several times with Emilio in Berlin. Korhan will be in Istanbul from January 10 until 22 to show his audio-visual installation Findings in a group exhibition titled “Waves” at Blok Art Space, curated by Ebru Yetişkin. The exhibition will include many other artists showing their new media works. The opening is on Thursday, January 15, in case you happen to be in Istanbul on that day. After his return from Istanbul, Korhan will debut his new lecture-performance project Is Paradise Cheaper? with writer Göksu Kunak at Quiet Cue on Saturday, January 24. On January 26, Korhan will embark on a tour in North Rhine – Westfalia, playing five concerts with his duo and trio partner guitarist Nicola Hein, as well as one solo show and one talk:
