"A sound art project about Istanbul, city with the most beautiful street sound i’ve heard.
I recorded samples from all over the city: streets, churches, markets, water, priests singing, fishermen shouting, cars, noises etc. then i took top 10 most popular songs in istanbul on the same week (from shazam website) - it’s music playing everywhere in cafes, restaurants, shops, on the radio etc. i extracted harmony and tempo from those pop songs, and afterwards ‘played’ those chords and melodies on granular synth using my pre-recorded samples as sources of sound.
So, it’s a sound of the city in an essence (in some way), and it also symbolizes the chaotic and contradictory nature of Istanbul as i think about it."
