dielectric sessions

experiencing different kinds of experimental electronic music in unusual spaces.

i co-created the ‘dielectric sessions’ concept with fellow electronic musicians fuji kureta and fecr-i ati in 2011.

the main struggle non-commercial electronic musicians faced in istanbul was the difficulty to perform our music in conventional places like nightclubs and bars at the time. we decided to create a series of concerts and perform our music at cozy and small places where people would not be forced to drink or dance in a loud environment.

we created a brand, formed a website and social media accounts and joined our forces to spread the word out. the first concert was a great experience for all three bands. we all had the opportunity to connect and communicate with our audience and had a chance to experience a one-of-a-kind performance at the time.
