Sounding Lifeworld

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formPerformanceSolo art productionpeer-review


Since 2020, Berke Can Özcan and Koray Tahiroğlu have shared ideas and knowledge in what has become the first joint-project with a whole new range of musical possibilities. The result, in which Özcan and Tahiroğlu created a composition using percussive drum loop modulations and an artificial intelligence (AI) model, has been explored in studio sessions in Istanbul, March 2022. Studio sessions turned into a continuous state of playing, revealing a variety of musical demands other than the ones they had been exposed to in their music practices. These sessions provided a state of transformation to a new sounding lifeworld with non-rigid but identifiable musical events followed by ever shifting new sounds in a multidimensional latent space. *Sounding Lifeworld* challenges AI-powered musical instruments’ potential in discovering a music performance that transcends musical expectations but still provides delicate relationships of symbiosis between human and non-human actors.
