Mark Lotz / Islak Köpek

May 2010 Mark Alban Lotz had the opportunity to record and perform with some of the great exponents of the free improvising scene in Istanbul. Out of this came two albums: CD 'Istanbul Improv Sessions May 4th' features a meeting of Lotz with the ensemble Islak Köpek (The Wet Dogs). This album features next to ensemble improvisations many duets and trios of Islak Köpek members with Lotz.

"This music is slithering and shaking with life." (Monsieur Delire, Canada)

“Fresh music, beyond every barrier, including electronic, electric and acoustic, between composed and improvised, classic and avant-garde. … everything seems to regain a new vitality and a current.” (Mescalina, Italy, rated Best of 2011)
