Representatives of 'Free jazz' that broaden our horizon and connoisseurs of experimental music take stage in Istanbul at the event of Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Art's Salon. "Konstrukt," an Istanbul-based jazz collective, accompanied by Japanese noise composer Keiji Haino, will bring "Free jazz," to Istanbul audiences, as they prepare to take the stage at the city's İKSV Salon this week.
"Konstrukt" was founded by Korhan Futacı, Ediz Hafızoğlu, Umut Çağlar and Barlas Tan Özemek in Istanbul in 2008, and made a breakthrough after recording an album with world famous Peter Brötzmann. They have also worked with many prominent musicians including Joe McPhee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Alfred Harth, Eugene Chadbourne, Alexander Hawkins, Okay Temiz, and Hüseyin Ertunç, as the group performed in numerous events and festivals in Turkey and abroad. Now, with veteran noise composer Keiji Haino they plan to introduce Istanbulites with "Free Jazz." Tickets for the concert are available on Biletix and the İKSV box offices.
