I'm booking some dates for: ERDEM HELVACIOGLU.

He's available in the Autumn.

Timeless Waves originally composed for a 47 channel / 53 speaker diffusion
system running on The Morning Line, is a sonic work based on six basic
human emotions. The CD is a stereo version of this multichannel work.
The piece has been inspired by W. Gerrod Parrott's book "Emotions in
Social Psychology" and has been commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art
Contemporary (T-BA 21) for The Morning Line - an interdisciplinary art
project by Matthew Ritchie, Aranda/Lasch and Arup AGU - and premiered in
May 2010, when the project was exhibited at Eminonu Square in Istanbul.
Sonically, Timeless Waves is based on the timbres of Togaman GuitarViol,
Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, sine waves, various analog pedals and
hardware fx processors. The music combines elements from genres such as
electroacoustic, drone, noise, contemporary music blended with minimal
