Performance: Acoustic Horizon
Özcan Ertek

Performance

April 14, 2023 / 19:00

Pera Museum presents Özcan Ertek’s interactive sound installation Acoustic Horizon, inspired by the Suna and Inan Kıraç Foundation Orientalist Painting Collection. The project launches with a live performance by Özcan Ertek, where he will be playing this instrument. 

The sound performance with metal horn, transistors and live coding experiments with the resonant qualities and investigates sound-metal relationship by altering the shape of the metals for tuning resonances. Inspired by the paintings in the Intersecting Worlds: Ambassadors and Painters exhibition, the performance will present a resonance environment created by the metal horn and electronics, which will host a vibrant, hypnotic world of soundscapes reflecting the relations between different geographies during the Ottoman Empire, complimented by artificial nature sounds. The performance also investigates historical urban daily life from an auditory perspective and acts as a portal that brings together sounds from different time periods and transmits extensive, deep spectrums of vibrational volumes.

The tickets are 80 TL and can be purchased on Biletix or at the Pera Museum reception on the day of the event. There is a 50% discount for Friends of Pera Museum. Seats are limited and unnumbered.
