about

Timeless Waves has been commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-BA21) for The Morning Line - an interdisciplinary art project by Matthew Ritchie, Aranda/Lasch and Arup AGU - and premiered in May 2010, when the project was exhibited at Eminonu Square in Istanbul.

Timeless Waves has been inspired by W. Gerrod Parrott's book "Emotions in Social Psychology".

Timeless Waves originally composed for a 47 channel / 53 speaker diffusion system running on The Morning Line, is a sonic work based on six basic human emotions. The CD is a stereo version of this multichannel work.

The piece has been inspired by W. Gerrod Parrott's book "Emotions in Social Psychology" and has been commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-BA 21) for The Morning Line - an interdisciplinary art project by Matthew Ritchie, Aranda/Lasch and Arup AGU - and premiered in May 2010, when the project was exhibited at Eminonu Square in Istanbul. Sonically, Timeless Waves is based on the timbres of Togaman GuitarViol, Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, sine waves, various analog pedals and hardware fx processors. The music combines elements from genres such as electroacoustic, drone, noise, contemporary music blended with minimal melodies.

"Timeless Waves arguably sets him among the likes of Fennesz, Stian Westerhuis, and Keith Fullerton Whitman in terms of his innovative use of guitar and electronics...For those who've grown wary/weary of processed guitar, Timeless Waves might just renew your faith in the medium. Helvacıoğlu's palette is wildly varied, challenging, yet always beautiful."

Nick Storring, Exclaim Magazine

"A splendid opportunity to fill that gaping chasm in your collection marked ‘Turkish sound-art."

Kev Nickells, Freq magazine

"Helvacioglu’s subtly engaging guitar work and masterful use of effects keep things interesting throughout. Imagine tapes of Pink Floyd and Derek Bailey cut up and transformed into musique concrète by Pierre Schaeffer."

Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player magazine

"Timeless Waves" album was included in the "BEST ALBUMS OF 2012" list on the Canadian music magazine EXCLAIM.
