June 18th, 2021. I am honored to have been a part of “Blurry the Explorer”s album that just came out today. Two years ago I met Jeremy Gustin in Istanbul for a duo concert, opening up for his Star Rovers. Since then we’ve been in contact and during the days of pandemic he put together this amazing band consisting of Ryan Dugre, Ricardo Dias Gomes, Leo Abrahams and himself. He asked me to participate in the track called “Teşekkürler”, I said YES and worked all night long in my studio going through all kinds of sounds: tape recordings I made down the Istanbul subway, the mighty prepared piano, vibes, bottle caps and samples! The list of guests for the rest of the tracks are so exciting: Brian ENO, Kalmia Traver, CJ Camerieri, Fiona Forte, Tenniscoats, and LIP TALK! Album art and the beautiful animation video for “Teşekkürler” is done by Clara Trevisan and the album is mixed by Christopher McDonald.
Please check out blurrytheexplorer.bandcamp.com and hear for yourself. Pure greatness. Thanks.
