For the exhibition On produceability, The Centre of Attention has created a musical score theme for. The sound reflects Anatolian influences and is inspired by the Centre's own art endeavours. The music was produced by Trio Krivoto part of kolektif Istanbul.


" 'On Produceability' is an internationally composed and organised groupshow that has its starting point in Istanbul and travels and develops throughout international venues. The project is about products, production and their placement in society. We invite artists to Istanbul to reflect on and refer to local conditions and global dimensions of production by creating new artworks. With their travel to Istanbul the artists have the possibility and opportunity to use the huge number of large and small manufacturing places. For their artistic purpose they can use this transparency of
production and take advantage of it..."
