Berk Yagli





Berk Yagli is a London, UK-based Cypriot guitarist, composer, and producer. His mission with his music has been to talk about social, political, and philosophical matters interestingly to invite the listeners into reflecting on the topics.

Berk’s works explore using/forming different forms of hybrids to engage and build (or intentionally break) relationships between metal music with electroacoustic music. His works aim to challenge the notions of high art and low art and criticize the oppressive uniformity that surrounds genres (even in avant-garde).

In his recent pieces, he forms abstract passages by finding seamless ways of getting in and out of metal and electroacoustic forms and dissolving the genres into one ‘alien’ format that is fueled by aggressiveness, power, and darkness. Even though his current works explore specifically the methods to hybridize electroacoustic and metal, his ultimate goal is to find ways that these methods could also apply to other genres.

During his residency, he will focus on a new composition project which prioritizes Japanese soundscapes and Japanese rock music as the main element to explore/approach for building different hybrid forms.
