Along with new creative possibilities, the shift to computer-based digital audio production workflows has entailed a shift in the vocabularies used to describe the aesthetic qualities of music. The central desire is to create a balanced (denk) mix, a process that is technically difficult and also related to a need to maintain balanced social relations within the industry’s professional networks. While many recordings are deemed to be exceptionally creative after release, the goal during production is to make a mix that is not bad (fena değil), which relates to industry strategies of risk aversion. Meanwhile, studio musician performances are regulated by concepts of correct performance practice (tavır) and individual interpretation (yorum), which differ from concert performance norms, while the overall sound is characterized by novel approaches to texture/color (renk) and the creation of a big sound (büyük ses) where leading instruments have sufficient shine (parlak).

Keywords:   aesthetic relations, aesthetics, arrangement, balance (denk), big sound (büyük ses), color (renk), interpretation (yorum), not bad (fena değil), performance practice (tavır), shine (parlak)
