Tanju Eren Orchestra

T.E.O. was formed in 2013 by band members Tanju Eren (Guitar, Vocals), Guven Ilter (Keyboards, Vocals), Serkan Oganer (Vocals), Nedim Tanyolac (Drums, Vocals) and, Cenk Tarhan ( Bass Guitar) aiming to make music that emerges from the inner self without reservations and through disregarding the status quo of the mainstream.

The lyrics and music written by Tanju Eren, after a year's work.  With Tanju Eren’s words:

The musical and lyrical content could be summarized as a reach out for sincerity through abstaining from the conformist intellectual and emotional conventions of personal and worldly nature.

This, so to speak, is the effort to render the words that would be uttered in spiritual, mundane, philosophical and social realms through the practice of lyrics as well as musical performance.

This is a voyage in pursuing for the free spirit and free artist and the joy of creation as an individual and as a member of a circle of mere five-member band.

The band members are a bunch of old friends who have been making music together for long and most importantly they are a circle of people knitted to each other as fellow human beings. T.E.O. is a band of fellowship.

The existence of our band can be defined as making a stand against the dictation of form that is faced by the new musicians all around. In short, doing whatever the heart tells and feeling no remorse.

Being aware of the banal and tried means of commercial success that most of the rock bands utilize to express themselves visually, we find creating a stage persona is somewhat comical. As band members, we all agree that the way we are is the purest and freest means of self-expression. As such, we refuse to be photographed in staged commercial scenery; we want to appear as who we are.

Music videos, strategies and norms of the music sector are irrelevant for us.

Hence, our philosophy is the same as the once naive but great artists stated, ''you are what you are…''

The sole aim of making music is making music. Our songs belong to the whole world, as the words belong to the universe once they are uttered form our mouths. We make music, because we cannot succeed not doing it.
