NK Ensemble

NK Ensemble is a new music ensemble that aims to develop a research
platform for composers on the usage of particular traditional
instruments in contemporary music. Such emphasis on research as a basic
objective for an ensemble may allude to intentions about internalized
comprehensions for the attributes of the traditional elements and their
existence in today’s music composition in order to eventuate in unique
aesthetical perspectives.

NK ensemble has been initiated upon composer Onur Türkmen and kemençe
player Nermin Kaygusuz’s collaboration since 2000 and is affiliated with
Bilkent University Faculty of Music and Performing Arts’ Composition
Department.
