Personal Recordings:

 

Pearl Bracelet 2017 was composed and performed remembering the incredible historical buildings hidden beyond the mist on the Eminönü- Kabatas axis, the noises of Maslak, the harmony of Emirgan, the fragrance of Besiktas and adolescent years spent in Fındıklı. With this work the artist created musical reflections of various Istanbul districts. Pearl Bracelet is a combination of several journeys including the artist’s Pearl Necklace route starting from Eminönü to Kabataş. Every time one takes this route a brand new picture awaits to be seen. The instrument selection is minimalistic. Hakan Kurşun describes the work as creating space for experimental music. If you can’t sleep well or if you want to mask your atmosphere by music, please try Pearl Bracelet. All instruments are performed by Hakan Kursun.  Pearl Bracelet  includes recordings that the artist did for the Istanbul Amsterdam Audio Tours exhibition, the Raumton texture that he composed for a beautiful sculpture by Ahmet Oran and instrumental recordings that he made to research how music can be slowed down.
