Electronic Crossovers
Ambient Electronic Music: Rediscovering Nature
Emre Karacaoğlu

Online Talk

January 14, 2021

Pera Museum’s talk and performance series Electronic Crossovers invites you to explore the fields that interact with electronic music!

A fruit of collaboration with Istanbul-based musical collective ÆVOM, “Electronic Crossovers” looks at a range of fields and disciplines that feed on and interact with electronic music, technology, literature, cinema, environment, psychology, sociology, computer games, politics, urban transformation, nature and philosophy to name a few. The very first online event of the series focuses on ambient music with Emre Karacaoğlu and Utkanj.

Our modern lives overload us with too many options, objects, colors, sounds and references, which makes it very hard for us to find our thoughts, inner voice, identity, that is our true nature. Our world is far from providing the physical and mental silence required to do it, ambient music thus rises as the closest alternative.

French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
