In the organizer's words:

Büşra Kayıkçı

Places' Tour 2024

Sat, 15.06.24
silent green, Berlin

Büşra Kayıkçı's new album "Places" is a continuation and deepening of her first compositional sketches and studies from 2019, which appeared on her debut "Eskizler". Kayıkçı's approach, both four years ago and now on this album, is synaesthetic in a way - in other words, her idea of combining music and architecture goes far beyond purely interdisciplinary thinking.

Büşra Kayıkçı grew up with music in her native Istanbul, learned piano as a nine-year-old, danced ballet and went to a weekend art school. But she decided to pursue interior design as a profession after school and studied interior architecture and environmental design at university, then worked in the profession for three years. "Studying architecture gave me a new perspective on art," she says - but in the end she found the creative freedom she had been looking for all along in composition. Inspired by modern classical composers such as John Cage and Michael Nyman, she wrote her first works in 2020, shortly before the start of the coronavirus pandemic. In November of the same year, she self-released the single "Doğum" (Turkish for "birth") and then her debut album "Eskizler". One of her most significant interdisciplinary projects to date is her collaboration with the New York Theatre Ballet in 2020, where choreographer Melissa Toogood created a contemporary dance piece based on Kayıkçı's music.
