ABOUT

THE PROJECT

This project systematises practical processes essential for the creation of a new, East-West strand of contemporary music and opera. Its tripartite approach of workshop-ethnography-theory combining with public events will offer a new model for transcultural praxis, while opening a door to the world for deeper understanding of Turkey’s exquisite musical traditions. Workshops and public performances--culminating in a team-authored book and the premiere of two chamber operas--will map out entirely new ways of bridging respective cultures, with the aim of creating music not of East or West, but simultaneously above and beyond both.
