Tuna Pase
voice, flute, laptop

Tuna Pase is a musician based in Istanbul. Her areas of interest are electro-acoustic composition, improvisation, ethnomusicology, sound engineering and sound design. She plays flute, percussion and sings. She draws her musical inspiration from Istanbul, Jerusalem, Eastern hemisphere, nature, poetry, photography, street art and daydreaming. She performs her electroacoustic compositions in an improvised manner, where she "re-composes" them live using the elements that build those compositions. She is also an academician, teaching ethnomusicology and music technology. She loves inspiring children through workshops on sound and music.

She has played and attended projects and workshops in Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Italy ) and Turkey. High Zero will be her first appearance in the US.

She has been composing under the moniker "outoftune" and brings them together under the conceptual name "Discotheque Sounds From The Cemetery". The name "outoftune" is inspired by her ethnomusicology advisor Robert Reigle, when he told her that she was outoftune after her first ever classical music performance in front of an audience.
