Pera Museum’s new talk and performance series 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.

Opened by Assoc. Prof. İlke Boran with a talk on the birth of electronic music, the series will continue with a DJ performance by Fulya Uçanok, reflecting her interpretation of the theme.

The performance will take place at Pera Café. Free admission; drop in. No reservation, limited seats.

Fulya Uçanok has a bachelor degree from the Department of Piano at Hacettepe University Ankara State Conservatory, and a master’s from the piano program at Istanbul Technical University’s Centre for Advanced Studies in Music (ITU MIAM).  Following the master’s diploma, she went to Bali, Indonesia with Darmasiswa, an Indonesian government grant for her gamelan studies. There, she studied the “Gender Wayang” gamelan tradition for one and a half year.  Next stop on her academic path was enrolling in the Sonic Arts doctorate program at ITU MIAM where she studied electroacoustic composition and performance. She is a member of Klank.ist impro, a band of Istanbul-based musicians engaging in free improvisation and interdisciplinary works.

Her current areas of interest include pluralism in electroacoustic composition and performance, how to make accessible-but-not-popular music, the “in between” mechanisms and the ways to eliminate mutual power dynamics.
