Oğuz Kaplangı / Music & Sound Design... and Mitsou the cat
From the Rhinoceros reviews:
★★★★★ Joyce McMillan / The Scotsman (August 7, 2017)
An unforgettable score of driving, waltzing Turkish dance-rhythms presented live by composer Oğuz Kaplangı
★★★★★ Irene Brown / EdinburghGuide.com (August 6, 2017)
Live foley and music on stage from Oğuz Kaplangı adds to this outstanding production
★★★★★ Grah Morrison / Hammey’s Commedy Reviews (August 11, 2017)
The music and sound effects all come from one person sat off to the side of the stage, and they alone achieve more than entire orchestras do in other productions
★★★★★ Ros MacKenzie / Lothian Life (August 6, 2017)
The haunting music of Oğuz Kaplangı, composer and sound designer, gives this drama Turkish roots
★★★★ Anne Treneman / The Times (August 7, 2017)
The tabby cat, Oğuz Kaplangı, who also plays the composer, is particularly engaging
