Besides leading or being member of several projects, Korhan Erel also plays solo electronic music concerts. Korhan likes to sonify narratives or concepts, weaving field recordings, found, designed and synthesized sounds together into stories diffused in space through multiple speakers. Korhan played in art spaces, museums and venues in Berlin, Brussels, Florence, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, Münster, Pisa, Riga, Solingen, Teheran and Vienna. Two of Korhan’s performances in Istanbul have been released on the UK-based Electronic Musik internet label under the title “Public Computing“.
