Istanbul based multi-instrumentalist Umut Çaglar founded the Turkish free jazz band Konstrukt at the beginning of 2008. Since then the band went through many line-up changes and collaborated with with the likes of Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, William Parker and Keiji Haino, continuously evolving its sound. The band is currently formed by Çaglar, Korhan Futaci, Apostolos Sideris, Erdem Göymen and Berkan Tilavel and this EP -recorded at Hayyam Studio in Istanbul in 2017 with two drummers and a double bass player on board- shows a more melodic and groovy side of the band. The session explores their rhythmic roots with the use of traditional instruments such as bendirs, tefs and double reeds, trying to carry these sounds to the future with the help of electronics.
