Akkor was born when musician and producer Üstün Lütfi Yildirim, who performs solo as well as producing collective interdisciplinary audiovisual live performances, began his minimal electroacoustic compositions in 2010.
The Turkish artist focuses on found noises from urban life and uses electronic and electroacoustic instruments combined with computer aided techniques to create his celestially atmospheric sound. To enhance his musical tales with visual narratives, he designs site-specific audiovisual performances that feature live visuals and light installations via collective collaborations.
He recently released a 7-track body of work titled Durma, delivering a rich exploration of ambient and electronic styles. Lifted from the album is the track Işık which offers the perfect taste of Akkor’s sonic world. Sparse instrumentation delicately develops, dripping in a stretching reverb as Senking-esque percussion shots snap around the arrangement to build blissfully soporific yet truly engaging listening experience.
