How is the mind of a fairy, right after it gets killed? Take a psychological journey through a confused mind. A concept album made of post-modern mix of emotions through electronic music with experimental jazz and ambient influences.

"Fairy Got Killed" is based on the ideas that I noted, drafted and recorded between 2000 and 2005. Then life drifted me to projects involving other people. Academy, bands, live music... I had to freeze my inner self at that point. Seven 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 kept the sounds that I picked, left the solos 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. I was surprised by my mental state at that time. It was a really exciting experience. It was like having a sub-conscious communication through the years. I hope you can experience this feeling too.

The tracks 2 and 4, "Fairy Got Killed" and "Manifest of a Dead Fairy" are the basic drive for the concept. The music made its own way into somewhat of a drama. I didn't choose a storyline to follow. Then the concept just appeared as it is. 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, and adults can benefit more from them.

The artwork is a painting of my friend Ozge Senogul, who 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 them. 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.
