Info for Pure
Kaan Bulak's first release as a singer reveals his approach to songwriting and what can be expected from him in future. There are five songs and an improvisation that offer a variety of virtuosic playing, immersive buildups and intimate vocals. Closeness to singer peaks on the first single 'Moving Leaves', which consists of only his voice. Dry and intimate singing floats above an electroacoustic ensemble, which was built solely from vocal recordings. On 'Cinnamon' and 'Unexpired', dialogs of the violin-guitar-duo become melodic statements, while beats emphasise their rhythms. All tracks were mixed for private listening, in which listeners can appreciate the full range of dynamics the most.
Kaan Bulak, vocals
is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist between cultures and genres originating from Istanbul, living in Berlin. In his music polyrhythmic beats are merged with atmospheric chords, virtuoso passages played with an oriental touch, and it is more important to emphasise a crescendo than to play loudly. Recently he played concerts around Europe with Sofar Sounds, produced an electronic record with Jay Haze on Contexterrior Records, and composed the soundtrack for We Were Rebels. His live concerts represent a mixture of a concert hall and an electronic club, which take a new shape with every new improvisation.
This album contains no booklet.
