Field of Activity

Composition
"Apart from my interest first in rock and then in jazz, my ears are always open to the land on which we live and to the music of all the neighbouring lands. In fact what I do is nothing more than combining all the things I love. There is a piece called "Pasajlar"(Passages) we play a lot in concerts. This piece is made of four parts. The first part is a Monteverdi quotation, the second is a Kurdish melody, the third is my song "Lidyalı kadın" (Lydian Woman) and the last is a part resembling Caucasian rhythm.(…). In this piece, everyone finds something they can relate to for themselves and others."
(Ayşe Tütüncü)
