David Murray Infinity Quartet "Flowers for Memo" At Babylon Bomonti on 27th Octeber Grammy winning jazz musician David Murray’s first visit to Turkey in 1990, 25 years ago, was organized by Mehmet Uluğ. Later on, after the death of Uluğ, with whom the musician became close friends, in 2013, he composed a 3 part suite. “Mehmet Uluğ Suite” was first performed by David Murray and Infınity Quartet for the first time in March this year, in Babylon, which was co-founded by Uluğ himself. The music that came out during this performance was so powerful and meaningful that it became an album project. Produced by Brian Bacchus, who previously worked for musicians like Norah Jones and Gregory Porter, this album will be recorded at Babajim Istanbul Studios a week before the Akbank Jazz Festival.

Visiting The Museum of Innocence
10/19/2015 1:53:06 PM
The Museum of Innocence is both a novel by Orhan Pamuk and a museum he has set up. From the very beginnings of the project, since the 1990s, Pamuk has conceived of novel and museum together. The novel, which is about love, is set between 1974 and the early ’00s, and describes life in Istanbul between 1950 and 2000 through memories and flashbacks centred around two families – one wealthy, the other lower middle class. The museum presents what the novel’s characters used, wore, heard, saw, collected and dreamed of, all meticulously arranged in boxes and display cabinets. It is not essential to have read the book in order to enjoy the museum, just as it is not necessary to have visited the museum in order to fully enjoy the book. But those who have read the novel will better grasp the many connotations of the museum, and those who have visited the museum will discover many nuances they had missed when reading the book. The novel was published in 2008, the museum opened in Spring 2012.
