We focus on two new tracks from the Istanbul based artist Üstün Lütfi Yildirim aka Akkor. Akkor’s deeply felt electronic pieces skirt the line between dark ambient, deconstructed techno and site-specific sound-art. We are thrilled to display two of his offerings below.
While operating as a dark ambient / experimental electronic track full of completely disorienting tonal shifts and field recordings that have been manipulated into completely new creatures, “An” is actually a solo piano composition at its heart. Although digitally deconstructed, the strong melodies and sharp hits of Akkor’s acoustic piano are replete throughout providing an extra gravitational pull.
Sounds of urban life are manipulated and distorted to create the growing and evolving noisefloor of “Zabt” while a serrated bass line and sunken piano line punctuates the searching din. “Zabt” is a surging night drive through an abandoned city. Streetlights passing on each beat. Subtle synthwave influences can be found on here in its motorick linear drive. A truly nocturnal track, Akkor delivers on the promise of creating site-specific urban music on “Zabt”.
