Named after Jackson Pollock’s acclaimed painting, Portrait and a Dream fuses a variety of genres and influences. Fuelled by the curious and talented minds of three young artists, the project transcends through the limitations of singularity, and drifts across free jazz, fusion, electronic, rock, indigenous Turkish folk and classical music, while maintaining its central connection with Jazz idioms. The founder of the project, encourages his fellow group members to interpret his works in the most autonomous way, allowing the formation of a harmonious dynamic without drowning the individual efforts.
