The Wire


Wire Mix: Ipek Gorgun

November 2018

The Istanbul based sound artist has recorded a collage mix for The Wire

Turkish producer and sonic arts researcher Ipek Gorgun released her second solo album Ecce Homo via Touch in September 2018. This new playlist features tracks by some of the artists who’ve influenced Gorgun, along with interspersed audio excerpts from films and public ads. “I was quite interested in the idea of creating a dialogue between the tracks,” she says over email, “and to build a space where each track was blending into the surrounding tracks, becoming a different entity without compromising its defining qualities. To my ears everything can become music and I enjoy reflecting that perspective in my mixes.”
