KONSTRUKT was formed at the beginning of 2008 in Istanbul, Turkey. The major breakthrough for the band was the recording with Peter Brötzmann who was visiting Istanbul for a concert, the same year. Lately, the band has been garnering attention not only back home in Turkey but also within European improvised music circles. They have done recordings with some significant names like Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Keiji Haino, Michael Zerang, Graham Massey, Alfred Harth, Eugene Chadbourne, Alexander Hawkins, Alan Wilkinson, A Trio, Okay Temiz, Hüseyin Ertunç, toured all around Europe with Italian band Squadra Omega in 2016 and performed at many prestigious international festivals / clubs such as Babylon Istanbul, Akbank Jazz Festival, XJazz Istanbul, IST. Festival, SalonIKSV, Karga, Peyote, Naima, Nazım Hikmet Kültür Merkezi, Borusan Müzik Evi, Toprak Ev, Külah (Turkey), Saalfelden Jazz Festival, Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf (Austria), Krakow Jazz Autumn, Jazztopad, Las (Poland), Punctum (Czech), Sant'Anna Arresi Jazz Festival, Tarcento Jazz, Villa Ada Roma, Fortezza Di Castelfranco, Cox18, Cantina Cenci, Freakout, Astro Club (Italy), Radialsystem V, Schrippe Hawaii (Germany), Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival, Cafe Oto, Exchange, Islington Mill (UK), Casa Da Musica, Jazz Im Goethe Garten (Portugal), Instants Chavirés (France), JazzKantine (Switzerland), OCCII (Holland), Magasine4, Kunstecentrum Vooruit (Belgium), Em Chill, DRM (Lebanon).  "Their acerbic razor-edged sound cuts through the morass of pulsed energy like a hot knife through butter. The music draws from the world music of Don Cherry, the electric Miles Davis era, Sun Ra's otherworldliness, and the Coltrane-intonations of Paul Dunmall” - Mark Corroto, AAJ (April 13th, 2015)
