Mahal is conceived as a site specific sound project for Müze Evliyagil. Even though it contains diverse elements such as musical performance and sound installation, it aims to provide the audience with a collective sound experience. Works, that are formed upon a conceptual basis thought out by seven composers, occupy their own spaces  simultaneously in a similar fashion that art objects are placed in a museum. Each work penetrates into the other by interfering with the space of the other. The impossibility of containing sound in a closed space, became a common starting point rather than an obstacle for the project. For a good hour, this collective sound world that penetrates every corner inside and spills outside, aims to add a new layer to the memory that the space has created up to now. Unlike a musical concert, Mahal does not require any ideal position to experience. The impossibility of perceiving sounds of Mahal as a whole, encourages listeners to draw their own individual paths, ultimately offering them a unique and subjective experience.

 

Point-Instant

for 10 transducer speakers attached to the stairway

If we imagine that each point in the space has an instant image, the infinite number of instants create a fluent motion which contains both complexity and simplicity within itself. Through this motion each point transform the meaning of space dynamically. In Point-Instant, I approached to sound as those points which are shaped by the place they belong while leaking into their neighbors in order to serve the whole motion.
