Osman Murat Ertel (of BaBa ZuLa)
Tuesday, Oct. 10th, 7pm - 8pm on Morricone Island
Osman Murat Ertel, co-founder of Istanbul-based psych/Turkish folk/electronic band BaBa ZuLa, discusses his latest soundtrack to director Imre Azem's documentary "Turkey On The Edge" about Turkey's struggle in the current divisive state, post-failed alleged 2016 coup attempt with the recent erosion of liberties and consolidation of power into Erdogan's hands. The score features the Turkish instrument saz played acoustically and amplified with effects creating electronic sounds from a minimal sound source. BaBa ZuLa as a band has also composed for film, television and documentary since its inception in 1996 including "Somersault In A Coffin," "Ice Cream, I Scream," "Biz Size Asik Olduk," "Hyena" and "Mustang."
