Founded in 1986 by [a=Serhat Köksal] in Istanbul, 2/5 BZ works as a multimedia project with various releases in video, music and literary formats. Combining traditional Turkish music, noise, ambient, big beat and numerous other stylistical references, 2/5 BZ creates a distinct modern experimental sound bridging occident and orient. Characteristic for the work and output of 2/5 BZ is the balancing on the verge of trash and the continuous work with collages of music, cinema, speech and field recordings. So far, 2/5 BZ has performed at well-known festivals such as Club Transmediale in Berlin, collaborated with numerous musicians such as [a=Tim Hodgkinson] and been presented, among others, by [a=John Peel] in his famous John Peel sessions on BBC. 2/5 BZ's motto: [i]No Touristik , No Exotic .[/i]
