Farketmez is a band with members working on different professions with a high tempo that the time is limited to use in their weekly rehearsals. The band's production method is to use the improvisational sounds which created in these weekly rehearsals as raw materials to create some catchy sounds with a vibe that can be recorded eventually. Even the recorded songs are still keep evolving in these jams and they can be reconstructed in new concerts. The biggest catalyser in this eclectic sound is the diversification of the different cultures sourced from the band members.
