Islak Köpek @ Radialsystem

March 14, 2015

Islak Köpek will play a concert on March 14 at Radialsystem in the New Sounds of Istanbul and Berlin event organized by Borusan Music House (Istanbul) and Radialsystem (Berlin), and curated by Ipek Ipekçioğlu.

Islak Köpek is a free improvisation ensemble founded by Korhan Erel and Şevket Akıncı in 2005. It has been at the forefront of experimental music in Turkey ever since and has pioneered the beginning of free improvisation as an established genre in Turkey with several festival, television appearances, sometimes going to the extent of having made fun of in Turkish TV shows, as well as two albums released in Turkey and the Netherlands. The ensemble will be celebrating its 10th anniversary with a first-ever international appearance. Berlin-based cellist Nora Krahl will join Islak Köpek for this concert. Nora is no stranger to new and experimental music scenes in Istanbul and has played several concerts with the members of the ensemble in and outside Turkey.
