The source sounds for Tantana ('fanfare' in Turkish) were recorded while rehearsing for a concert in Freiburg during the Euro 2008 football tournament. On this particular evening Turkey had beaten Croatia in the quarter finals, and the numerous Turkish supporters in the city took to their cars to create their own improvised celebratory fanfares. 

Tantana was composerd for the opening of the Firstsite Arts Centre, Colchester, England.
