Â’mâk-ı Hayâl Project

(Deep of the Dream Project)

The name of the project comes from the writing called “Â’mâk-ı Hayâl” which was written by Şehbenderzâde Filibeli Ahmed Hilmi in 1908. This writing is important because it tells about the concept of unicity in sufism (tasavvuf philosophy). In this book the writer not only tells about sufism in Anatolia but also handles sufism in a universal basis. The partners educated in different musical disciplines and performing together since 2011 aim to handle music in the view point of this book and independent from the performance style, to live and give everyone the chance to live a time period in serenity and peace by walking along the thin line between imagination and real life in this project consisting of different kinds of music including improvisations.
