Biography

Istanbul, Turkey

Computer and electronics musician, performer, improviser, composer

Turkish composer / improviser based in Istanbul, Turkey. He is a founding member of Islak Kopek, Turkey’s pioneer free improvisation group. He performed and had compositions played in radios, festivals in Turkey, Austria, Australia, Holland, Germany, Finland, Ireland and the UK. He performed telematic concerts over Skype in Germany, Spain and the US (New Mexico)

Korhan approaches computer performances from a conventional instrument approach. He refrains from using many sound layers and frequency ranges in order to leave space for acoustic and electric instruments he plays with. He also plays melodica and Cracklebox in ensemble performances. For his solo performances, he augments the computer with other sound sources, such as analog electronics (modular synths, guitar effects, oscillators, digital effects). He plays his computer instruments similar to a conventional instrument player - the laptop is the “sound body” and the “resonators”, the controllers are the “exciters”. The screen is occasionally used for monitoring software status and is not used as a part of the performance, thus avoiding the typical look of the laptop musician, staring at the screen all throughout a performance. He uses Wiimotes and a iPod Touch as the “fretboards” for his instruments.
