“Fairy Got Killed ” is a concept album that I made between the years 2000 and 2005. At those days there wasn’t any suitable environment for independent music publishing, so I kept the project for myself. Then life drifted me to projects involving other people. Academy, bands, live music… I had to freeze my inner self at that point. 7 years later, now I caught the chance to return to my singularity…
So, it was just the right time to bring the death of the fairy into life. Although my personality and musicality changed a lot in this period, I chose to stick hard to my vision in the first half of 2000′s. I left the guy who made this pieces alone. I kept the sounds that I picked, left the notes recorded as they are. It needed to be authentic because, for me, it was an interesting look into my inner self 7-8 years ago. I was digging through the details of a snapshot of my own self frozen in 2005. For each audio channel I recorded I was going deeper in this details. Honestly, I was surprised by my mental state at that time. It was a really exciting experience. It was like finding the notes you wrote years ago and read them again and again for days. It was like having a sub-conscious communication in time through the years. I hope you can experience this feeling too.
As the names mention, the tracks 2 and 4, “Fairy Got Killed” and “Manifest of a Dead Fairy” are the basic drive for the concept. I didn’t follow a plot or storyline while composing. The music made its own way into somewhat of a drama. Then the concept just appeared as it is. Then this flow is formed:
A Confused Mind â Fairy Got Killed â Simulacrum â Manifest of a Dead Fairy â
â Tribal Peace Dance â Sunshine
The Sunset Lounge Edit of the piece “Sunshine” is not listed in the flow because the idea for it came into my mind during the mixing stage. Because of this I added it as a bonus track special to the Bandcamp edition of the album.
I always like representing psychology of some abstract cases with music. It is a dense feeling. I always like the realistic elements in stories. They are filled with intense psychology and horror. I don’t know why we treat them as child’s toys. I think they can be really traumatic for children. On the other side, adults can benefit more from them.
Everything you hear is coming out of a Korg Triton Classic make 2000. In order to make you feel this classic vintage machine, I recorded the album at 192 kHz and applied a minimal mixing and mastering process in a 64 bit depth engine. If you are an audiophile and still can hear some artifact, it is from the internal sound and age of the synth.
The artwork is a painting of my dear friend Ozge Senogul. She is also a fashion designer. She really has some amazing paintings full of interesting psychology and atmosphere. They feel like almost animated and flowing. I feel lucky being one of the few who could see the paintings. She wrote to me after listening to the album: “It feels like a fantastic play. Especially “Fairy Got Killed” and “Manifest of a Dead Fairy“, for me, are flying with wings.” Many thanks to her.
