Ipek Gorgun “Ecce Homo” (Touch, 2018) – anmeldelse af Ida Selvejer Faaborg

Den tyrkiske komponist og lydkunstner Ipek Gorgun har netop udgivet sit andet soloalbum, “Ecce Homo”, på det engelske label Touch Music, som omfavner både elektronisk eksperimenterende musik og lydkunst. Og netop lydkunst er centrum for den ph.d.-afhandling, Gorgun er i gang med at lave på Centre for Advanced Studies in Music ved det tekniske universitet i Istanbul. Hendes bagkatalog som musiker tæller bl.a. det selvudgivne album “Aphelion” samt “Perfect Lung”, der er et samarbejde med den canadiske producer Ceramic TL (aka Egyptrixx). På det nye album, som indeholder en fintfølende sans for sammensætning af støj og klangfulde kompositioner, skaber Gorgun en abstrakt lytteoplevelse, hvor lys og mørke, skønhed og destruktion konstant overlappes og smelter sammen.

By Ipek Gorgun – introduction by Mads Kjeldgaard

Turkish sound artist, experimentalist and musician Ipek Gorgun released one of the most spectacular debut albums of 2016. As such, she is one of the most interesting artists to emerge on our musical radars in 2016: The self-released “Aphelion” is a deep exploration of the sonic possibilities of computer music with experiments in spectral sound, noise as well as concrete methods. Her album has been picked up by renowned record label Touch which reissued the album in December 2016. Gorgun is also an alumni of the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy and is currently enrolled in the doctoral program of sonic arts at Istanbul Technical University’s Center for Advanced Studies in Music. We asked her what musical experiences shaped the year 2016, and she replied by reviewing the album she loved the most and by recommending some of the best music coming out of Turkey last year.
