Ahmet Aslan:
The only time when I was truly myself was during my childhood. Then, when I was 5 years old, my parents registered me at the local office of administration. Probably at that moment I also lost my original self. The only thing I liked at school, when I was that age, was painting.

I believed I could paint away what I had lost. Although the paintings neverÊreflected my true self I still became the best in my age group in Turkey. That happiness also didn't last song: I watched my father use the paintings for firewood so he could enjoy his cup of tea and smoke his cigarettes. (Painting was not considered a serious vocation).

During my time at the Lyceum I learned to play the Tambur. Through the instrument I longed to express my true self. I went from Diyarbekir to the conservatorium of Istanbul, always improving my skill, but failing to find a personal connection/affinity.

In Germany I even lost contact with the Tambur. Then I met the guitar and he helped me rekindle my relationship with the tambur (instrument of my ancestry).

Now we are an union of Three. With the music we made I felt I had reached a point before the Dawn of Time. Is what I was tought the truth? Does history really start at zero? Is zero even in the right place? (Or have we reached the limits of our understanding?)
