Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen Sub City 2064 Erdemhelvacioglu.com / Perboysen.com - CD “Sub City 2064” weist schon von seinem Titel her in die Zukunft, so dass die futuristische Anmutung der Soundscapes nicht ganz unerwartet trifft. Das Kollaborations-Release eines Musikers aus der Türkei und eines Schweden ist ein weiterer Beweis dafür, dass die zunehmende Digitalisierung der Musik und die globale Vernetzung für die Umsetzung kreativer Ideen und Kunst allgemein durchaus förderlich sein kann. Die beiden Tüftler haben ein cineastisch geprägtes Instrumental-Werk...Devamını oku
Metasynth 2010
Artist Profiles MetaSynth plays a prominent role in the work of many leading composers, musicians and sound designers. It has played a major role in soundtracks for major motion pictures and TV shows, countless techno and electronica releases as wellavant-garde and experimental CDs. MetaSynth is often the secret tool in the arsenal of professional sound designers and producers who are reluctant to publicize the tool that gives them the edge. Its use as a key tool in the sound design for The Matrix which won an Academy Award for sound is widely known. It has played an...Devamını oku

Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen "Sub City 2064" (Eigenproduktion 2010) Die Beschreibung ihres ersten Stückes auf "Sub City 2064" ist bezeichnend: "Erdem plays guitar and drum machine. Per plays flute. Both go crazy on electronics". Die Zusammenarbeit des türkischen Komponisten Erdem Helvacioglu mit dem schwedischen Crossover-Musiker Per Boysen, dessen Beitrag (mir zu) folkloristische Noten trägt, beweist eindrucksvoll die inspirative Kreativität beider Musiker und zeigt im grandiosen Interplay Beider mit dem größten Input der elektronischen Instrumente das intuitive...Devamını oku

ERDEM HELVACIOGLU & PER BOYSEN - SUB CITY 2006 (CD, private) In 2064 I'll be 99 and there will be about 3300 Vital Weeklies. Unless of course there has been some horror like apocalyptic scene as depicted by Erdem Helvacioglu and Per Boysen on their new album 'Sub City 2064'. The soundtrack of an imaginary film. The two plays guitars, electronics, flute, saxophone and such like. The music is not exactly what would be required from a science fiction soundtrack, I think. Its is mood music for sure, but not that an apocalyptic nature. It sounds a bit improvised, certainly...Devamını oku

Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen - Sub City 2064 (Bimm, 2010) Contributed by Andrea Ferraris Saturday, 26 June 2010 Con mostruoso ritardo mi appresto a recensire questa collaborazione che mette assieme il compositore turco, che i più attenti di voi ricorderanno recensito in alcuni vecchi lavori su questa stessa webzine e lo svedese Per Boysen, che per quanto a molti non dirà nulla è un musicista che ha lavorato a diversi progetti, preminentemente in studio e su materiali fra musica sperimentale e colonne sonore. Diversamente dai precedenti lavori che abbiamo recensito...Devamını oku

PSF's 2010 Writers' Poll Our favorite things Left to right: The Eels, Gil Scott-Heron, Kemialliset Ystavat, Janelle Monae, Guitar Shorty Can it already be another year and another poll of our PSF writers? Guess so and that means that our crew lets loose with 20 of their favorite albums (or less if they like). Also note that some of the lists are kind of unconventional (which we approve of, needless to say). As usual, we don't tally up the results to find out whoever's most popular here. Instead, we hope you can take the time to wade through the selections and find some...Devamını oku

Private release Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen : Sub City 2064 (TÜ/S,2010)***° ‘Live electronics’ are being used more and more often, not only as tools for new effects or distortions on an instrument, but also as real, distinctive instruments with their own pallet of pre-programmed changes. Turkish-born Erdem Helvacioglu and Swedish Per Boysen both have experience in this field. Erdem uses the guitar, the cello guitar and a drum machine as his main instruments for filtering, programming and electronic processing. Per plays flute and some tenor sax and horns and...Devamını oku

Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen: Sub City 2064 Helvacioglu / Boysen Erdem Helvacioglu's latest recording finds the Turkey-based electronic producer and guitarist teaming up with Swedish freelancer Per Boysen for an hour-long instrumental set the two conceived as a sci-fi horror soundtrack of sorts. Though Helvacioglu has made his reputation in part for his explorative guitar work, Sub City 2064 is most assuredly not an album that simply places guitar soloing front and center and relegates everything else to the background. The material's broad sound palette draws as...Devamını oku

ERDEM HELVACIOGLU & PER BOYSEN Δεν είναι δύσκολο να χαρακτηρίσεις το έργο του τούρκου κιθαριστή (χειρίζεται, επίσης, διάφορα μπιμπλίκια) Herdem Helvacioglu και του σουηδού σαξοφωνίστα-φλαουτίστα (επίσης χειρίζεται διάφορα μπιμπλίκια) Per Boysen. Στο 58λεπτο “Sub City 2064” [Private Pressing, 2010] αναφέρομαι, ένα ηλεκτρονικό εν γένει άλμπουμ, με τις όποιες ενδεχόμενες παραλλαγές και διακλαδώσεις του.Η space αισθητική, το πρώτο που λέω, είναι πανταχού παρούσα στο CD, είτε μιλάμε για τα soli των σαξοφώνων (άκου Gato Barbieri), είτε για τα κιθαριστικά (άκου Pink Floyd)·...Devamını oku

Helvacıoğlu and Boysen release long-distance CD “Sub City 2064,” a new album billed as “a long-distance collaboration between Turkish electronic musician Erdem Helvacıoğlu and Swedish multi-instrumentalist Per Boysen,” has been released in Sweden, Helvacıoğlu’s publicist announced in a statement on Tuesday. The instrumental album is the musical depiction of a story set in the year 2064 in a fictional settlement beneath the ocean. “Sub City 2064,” a crossover work that blends such genres as ambient, electronica, dub and electro-acoustic, offers “the aesthetics of sci-fi and...Devamını oku
Arlequins Magazine June 2011
Questo CD è il risultato di una lunga collaborazione gestita da una coppia di brillanti musicisti che hanno creato con il tempo un proprio stile definito basato sulla ricerca e sperimentazione musicale: Per Boysen, multistrumentista jazz svedese ed il chitarrista turco Erdem Helvacıoğlu. In effetti Erdem Helvacıoğlu non è un nome nuovo sulle pagine di Arlequins, infatti già in passato ho avuto modo di parlare del suo ottimo disco solista “Altered Realities”, uscito nel 2006, disco strumentale dalle soffici trame elettroniche, in cui la chitarra elettrica raggiungeva un’...Devamını oku

Music Review: Erdem Helvacioglu & Per Boysen - Sub City 2064 When we hear the word "composer" I'm sure most of us still call to mind an image of an intense looking, white-haired man wearing a frock coat bent over a desk scrawling away with a feather quill. For some reason the word just doesn't seem to quite fit into our world of computers and digitally created sound. Yet since the 1960s men and women have been creating pieces of music using electronic equipment, and I don't just mean the occasional pop song either. No, we're talking about pieces of the same complexity...Devamını oku

This album, based in electronic and acoustic sound, and created through the long distance collaboration between Erdem Helvacıoğlu (Istanbul) and Per Boysen (Stockholm), is the upshot of their vision – to replicate “the cinematic vibe of a chilly sci-fi horror soundtrack”.

Another year is drawing to a close and now is the time for all those with the pretence of critical prowess to pontificate on what they thought was the best music of the past twelve months. We all take pride in our taste and discernment; we all wish to show how unique we are in our judgements and impress you, our readers, with our worldliness through the obscurity of our choices. To be honest, after five plus years of receiving at least a CD a day in the mail, I've been finding it harder and harder to find anything original to say about what I hear.
