Tolga Tüzün & Korhan Erel

Pianist/composer Tolga Tuzun and computer musician Korhan Erel both work in sounds and textures that live and breathe in spaces between “conventional” musical lines. Since 2008 they have collaborated to explore the interface of live performance, electronics and free improvisation. Their concert at Istanbul’s Borusan Music House was highly praised (read the review by Alexandra Ivanoff). The duo have released their first album Superimposed Circumstances digitally on Tolga’s label Another World. The album is available on all digital music distributors.

Tolga and Korhan have played and recorded with Berlin-based saxophone and clarinet player Frank Gratkowski in March 2014, and San Francisco-based composer, performer and activist Bob Ostertag in April 2014 at Bilgi University, where Tolga heads the Music Department. Tolga Tüzün was also one of the players in the John Cage centennial concert in Istanbul in December 2012, which was co-produced by NY-based composer, violist, writer and lecturer Tanya Kalmanovitch and Korhan Erel. Tolga and Korhan have also played two concerts in Cologne and Düsseldorf in the Frischzelle Festival in September 2014.
