Embark on a journey to create your own rhythms with sound designer and researcher Dr Oğuz Öner. Listen out for the sounds of daily life that may have forgotten to hear on this walk taking place in Bağdat Street. Capture the sounds of the city and the noise of the streets on an iPad. Edit these sounds on GarageBand with the help of Öner, turn them into music, and share your creation with the rest of the world.

Sound Designer

Oğuz Öner works on auditory and psychogeographic projects. He is the artistic director at Koç University and is currently working on his doctorate regarding ‘soundscapes’ at Istanbul Technical University. In addition to the above, Öner works on several different projects related to sound. By creating ‘sound walks’ around Kadıköy, he aims to create a sensory sound map of the area. He is also a part of the TORK dance community and has been involved with several Akbank Sanat dance projects focusing on bringing together meditative, experiential, improvisation pieces with video installations and more.

“It gives me a kick when users in the public sphere can navigate urban spaces and thus become active users through sonic games and research. In this context, I design sound walks and participatory sonic games with a sonic landscape approach.”
