"Shadowy Arcade" is the particular heading of Mehmet Okonsar's launched solo piano improvisations CD.

The disc is recorded in the artist's private recording studio as well as released through his own label. Not unlike John Zorn, this independent and incredibly dynamic musician and performer is certainly unafraid to launch a certain music that is mesmerizing for many, may be overwhelming with others, although can never be seen as "not-new", "standard" or "conventional".

The amazingly extended and also confusing headings of the pieces were added way after they are generally captured. Here are some examples: "He has snatched away the thunderbolt from heaven and the scepter from the sovereign", "Briefly thyself remember (Lear)", "Every hero becomes a bore at last (Emerson)","The gods too are fond of a joke (Aristotle)" etc.

The music style is actually a completely unique combination of, with no order, Alban Berg, Lyle Mays, Keith Jarrett, Alexander Scriabin, Erik Satie and many more.

"You may easily locate strains associated with music I've run into since I'm making music!" states Mehmet Okonsar, "Which is normal to me. Each and every music I really like leaves behind strains in me and I effortlessly disregard any others I can't stand."

A lot of those pieces are available as video-clips on the artists Youtube(r) channel: mokonsar.

All pieces can even be auditioned at Okonsar's homepage: http://www.okonsar.com.
