about

The fourth installment in the Met Life Series by Turkish composer Erdem Helvacioglu takes the listener through an Istanbul marketplace and captures the energetic day to day activities of hawkers buying and selling goods, children running about, traditional music in the distance, cell phones playing unfamiliar melodies.

Helvacioglu's response is almost like an enriched memory of the market’s cultural texture that musically retains much of that raw earth feeling one initially encounters on the field recording. But source material is elevated as field recorded voices are transformed into a rich chorus ensconced in an infectiously pulsing electronic trance that seems to float above the market itself.

“A Walk Through the Bazaar is an interesting addition to an interesting series.”

Rolf Semprebon , All Music

"The effect of hearing voices that became so familiar in the opening track blending with the music is striking, like the musical realization of a recovered memory."

Mark Richardson, Pitchfork magazine, June 2004
