2013 (English)In: IASPM@Journal, ISSN 2079-3871, Vol. 3, no 1, 80-90 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article focuses on copyleft music production in Turkey through a case study on Bandista, amusic collective with strong oppositional stance formed in 2006 in Istanbul. Describing itsmusical performances as "situationist experiment of rage and rapture" Bandista becameimmensely popular in the Turkish political music scenery after releasing its debut album De tefabula narratur in 2009 under the copyleft scheme. The article tries to look at the copyleft withthe notion of 'music as performance' in mind, and argues that copyleft politics are essential,especially for new music bands to form themselves as independent actors within the musicscene.
