Cities & Stories #2

In this episode, the concept is constructed in the reverse order: first the tracks are produced, then the corresponding photos are chosen. There is an abstract connection between the tracks and the images; the real story is hidden and covered by imaginary scenes, while crafting the sounds for it. ​​

The true story triggers an inspiration for a solid episode that allows anyone to imagine/create their own scenarios through the soundtracks.

Cities & Stories #2


Cities & Stories #1

Cities & Stories is a conceptual electronic music album produced by Sermet Cakmak. The idea is to combine sounds with photos; relating them to cities. 

"The first episode of Cities & Stories part of my story and my experience in Brussels. Unlike a complete project, it was more likely a demonstration for the idea, how pieces should be combined together; sounds, stories and photos. 

Cities & Stories answered some of the questions in my mind about releasing a conceptual album. I am not claiming that I am done; still tons of things to learn. Now I know how to handle the process, where to start, who to contact on the way. Next goal is to prepare for the second episode professionally."  - S. C.  

"Influence by the unique and fantastic arts in metro stations (Brussels, Belgium) created an idea: making tracks for each of them. Then... And then the idea got a little different shape: selected thirteen places that give me inspiration and produced a track for each of them. "
