About The Album  

KATRE travels among the post-rock / post-metal waves and the band has recorded a great debut album. Encounters is a concept album and focuses on the subject of existence. By applying the ebow on electric and fretless guitars, KATRE sustains the sound, and in doing so they combine the techniques of the west and the eastern culture, in which they grew up. Inspired by the stages that span conception and birth, to growth and self-awareness, the album explores these ideas through the two chapters, Existing and Existence.

The title of the album invokes Ercan Kesal’s [1] expression “the unrelated details give our lives a meaning” and the songs an extension of Erkan Oğur’s [2] statement “I cannot compose humoresques. Regardless of what I carry out, the result is only about the melancholy of being. We cannot cheer you up, but only help you be.” It is very important to mention that Erkan Oğur honored KATRE by playing fretless guitars and additional ebows as a special guest in the album’s opening track.

[1] An award-winning Turkish actor, author and screenwriter.

[2] A worldwide recognized musician, who invented the first fretless classical guitar as well as a number of other instruments.
