Program Notes

Commissioned by Turkish Chamber of Architects, “Dreamlines is dedicated to structure masters of Anatolia from the past to our time.” What I wanted to do in Dreamlines is to create a time block in which we are immersed in the depths and magic of one sound’s spell. A sound’s spell that is perhaps similar to an architect’s manifestation of a certain feeling where a structure’s existence comes from and how it is expressed throughout.. Like architect Mimar Sinan (architect of Blue Mosque in Istanbul) celebrating his creations in their very core, this is born from a strong and mysterious feeling. He blesses his structures first:

I am the oldest of the grand architects
If the world is a school I’m its master
God knows I created so many houses for him
I built many sanctuaries for prayer
