cevdet erek - frenzy - original motion picture soundtrack (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // cevdet erek
LABEL // subtext (uk)
CAT // sub017lp


Subtext presents new work by the Istanbul based artist and musician Cevdet Erek in extracts from his soundtrack to the Turkish crime thriller Frenzy, winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2015 Venice Film Festival. These two compositions shed light on Erek's diverse sonic background, both as a member of the seminal band Nekropsi and as a celebrated conceptual artist presenting sound and installation works internationally such as his "Room of Rhythms", which has been shown at Documenta, as well as the Istanbul and Sydney biennials. The first track, "Abluka Final", presents a tense and driving percussive wall of sound that mirrors Frenzy's dramatic storyline set against a backdrop of political violence in Istanbul. Accompanying this is a textural recording exploring aspects of warped time and shifting geometry that references the films disturbing subtext of social paranoia.
