Emre Karacaoğlu

Online Talk

January 14, 2021 / 19:00

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.

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
