    "ben de gittim bir geyiğin avına..."

    eng info: a short story based on anatolian folk legend about a hunter. a hunter who is lunatic, addicted to hunt red deers. he killed hundreds of them and still he couldnt stop. one time, after a long chase of very huge mother red deer, he mistakenly shot her youngster, while mother escaped. then our story begins...

    There are chains of mountains called aladağlar(like ala-geyik) near to Adana province, name of their peak is kızılkaya(redrock), so its believed that this story had happent in that area, and name of the mountains were coming from the blood of our couple.

    This story was first written by Yasar Kemal, nobel prize nominated turkish writer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasar_kemal). In the book of 3 Anatolian Legends (1967). He inspired by regional folk tales and folk song of this legend. Following years, famous Anatolian-psychedelic rock band "mogollar" arranged a new song from this traditional folk song(http://youtu.be/J7Sg4LOiS8U) in their album "1971: Les Danses et Rythmes de la Turquie d'hier á aujourd'hui ". They won "Grand Prix du Disque of the Charles Cros Academy" (previously won by such groups as Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix) in 1971 with this album.

    we tried to use traditional media and arrange it with new technics, new ways. Try to transport this story into nowadays from the dusty shelves of yesterday.

  5. Nazım Hikmet'in Kuvay-ı Milliye Destanı eseri ile ilgili bir çizgi dizi için hazırlanmış demo idi.

    " onlar ki toprakta karınca,
    suda balık,
    havada kuş kadar
    çokturlar;
    korkak,
    cesur,
    cahil,
    hakim
    ve çocukturlar
    ve kahreden
    yaratan ki onlardır,
    destanımızda yalnız onların maceraları vardır.

    onlar ki uyup hainin iğvasina
    sancaklarını elden yere düşürürler
    ve düşmanı meydanda koyup
    kaçarlar evlerine
    ve onlar ki bir nice murtada hançer üşürürler
    ve yeşil bir ağac gibi gülen
    ve merasimsiz ağlayan
    ve ana avrat kufreden ki onlardır,
    destanımızda yalnız onların maceraları vardır.
