Korhan Erel and Gunnar Lettow met for the first time in Istanbul 2011 to play a concert at Gram with tenor saxophonist Robert Reigle, Korhan’s bandmate from Islak Köpek. Gunnar Lettows electro-acoustic sounds of the prepared e-bass combined with the electronic instruments of Korhan Erel creates an fascinating, abstract sound world.
