alican çamcı’s output includes concert music, sound installations, as well as music and sound design in collaborative contexts for film, dance, and media art. His recent works feature an investigation of sound as a potentially documentary medium. He seeks to explore this aspect through the use of field and speech recordings, found sounds, everyday materials in relation to the performative dimension introduced by the musicians in a live situation.

He has worked with groups and soloists such as Ensemble Dal Niente, eighth blackbird, Ensemble Intercontemporain, International Contemporary Ensemble, Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, Oerknal!, Zöllner-Roche duo, the [Switch~ Ensemble], Jerfi Aji, Gleb Kanasevich, and Andrew Nogal, among others. In addition to his concert music, his work in collaborative contexts has been featured in festivals and exhibitions such as IFFR 2020, Sharjah Biennial Istanbul Offsite 2017, IFF Colombo 2014, SXSW 2013, !F Istanbul 2013, and 22nd Istanbul Short Film Festival. Currently he is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago.
