Erdem Helvacioglu and Ros Bandt "Black Falcon"

 
Erdem Helvacioglu, the prolific and astonishingly inventive young sound artist from Istanbul, is starting to muster a lot of attention, and work, internationally. And for good reason. He renders sounds into delicately textured sound sculptures that play with the mind and the heart. I had the pleasure of seeing Helvacioglu and the Australian Ros Brandt performing at the Yerebetan Sarnici (Cistern), where Brandt, among other things, used mikes in the water of the columned structure to pick up the sound waves of the fish who live there. The presentation there was subtle and powerful, and this recording evokes all but the physical atmosphere of the performance.
