Thanks to my brother, Arda Bozkurt, and my mom, Mujgan Bozkurt, for always patiently being with me. Cenk Sanlioglu, Burak Yildirim and Serkan Koseoglu, for their support on mixing.
Selim Aydin and Mirac Yavuz for studio support. Kadri Karahan and Mustafa Deliormanli for the photo shoot and design. Yasemin Kurttekin, Ete Kurttekin, Ali Kerrar Akıncı, Ozgur Gesli,
Emre Ratip and all my friends for moral and material support.

I am so glad to have had the chance to work with my friends, Erdem Baser and Nedim Ruacan, they added beautiful colors and brought different approaches to the music.
A big thank you to my mentors, Dave Harris and Douglas Kallmeyer, for teaching, encouraging and trusting me to make this release.
And thanks to the one who watches me from the deep blue sky...

-‘Children's Game in a Bomb Crater’ was composed for the children in Aleppo.
- ‘A tango in Tear Gas’ was composed for the resistance at Gaza border.
- ‘Humanity Washed Ashore’ was composed for the refugees who had to leave their homes because of war.

In memory of my dear friend, Volkan Korkmaz, who always gave me strength to keep going and to create.
