Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual Artists. Presently, the language comprises more than 1500 gestures that are signed by the Soundpainter (composer) to indicate the type of material desired of the performers. İSPO (İstanbul Soundpainting Orkestra) is the only soundpainting orchestra at Istanbul. İSPO improvises on traditional and contemporary musical ideas, experiments, and even includes the listeners into their experiments. They guarantee an exiting and extraordinary musical experience to their audience.
I am a classical guitar player-instructor, and PhD. student at ethnomusicology as well. I have also been running a boutique venue called GitarLive at Kadikoy-Istanbul for 19 years. I have organized more than 2000 concerts, and hosted many notable musicians/groups from all around the world here. As the owner of this place, I pay attention to the quality of the events. It is not a simply live music stage but a small concert hall for unique projects. As you can see from our web page, it has intimate and cozy atmosphere. It is situated in 120 years old building which reflects the historical ambience of old Istanbul. I am willing to share our exclusive organizations with the foreign guests more. Onok Bozkurt
The concert will be 120 years old authentic Kadıkoy apartment flat which is used as a venue for 19 years.
