August and September Concerts, Exhibition, Theater

Korhan Erel teamed up with Ayşe Cansu Tanrıkulu to compose music and sound for the theater piece “Krampus” directed and written by Isabella Sedlak and Ensemble at Maxim Gorki Theater. The play premiered on August 27 after a five-week period of rehearsals. Next shows are on September 16 and October 23.

Korhan played four shows with Klub Demboh and guests in August and September. The guests were Kalle Mews, Antoine Hummel, Mano Hiroki (subbing for Ciska Jansen, who couldn’t make it) and Lena Czerniawska. The venue was Petersburg Art Space

A new quartet was born out of a beautiful concert on Korhan’s Sowieso night on August 28. The quartet, yet to be named, consists of Alessandra Eramo (voice, tapes, electronics), Korhan Erel (synth, electronics), Ariel Orah (electronics, objects) and Kirsten Reese (laptop, controllers, objects). Stay tuned for more from this new, exciting group.

Korhan is showing their work “Scarecrow” at »deep states«, an exhibition curated by Maja Smozna at Bärenzwinger with works by BBB_ (Alla Popp & Alex Traka), Korhan Erel, Gosia Lehmann, Lukas Liese, Kristina Paustian and ZUGANG Kollektiv (Bruno Siegrist, Ada Kopaz, Can Kurucu, Tama Ruß). The exhibition will be open to public until November 21.
