Inspired by the stylistic traits of pulp sci-fi novels, the cold war era and the genre of alternate history, Bilsel's audio-visual set Tales From The Future conjures a dystopian universe where his SimTape concept brings imagination to the whole scenario and the music itself.
Tales From The Future is a musical and visual presentation with live synthesizer performances over original compositions; downtempo electronica, synthpop, funky house and other odd experimental numbers as well as synchronized visual images.
"Either we are going to create simulations that are indistinguishable from reality or civilisations will cease to exist…those are the two options"

"Like most people, I’ve dabbled at the keys of a Hammerstein Mood Organ, and I enjoy it. But there’s nothing creative about it. True, you can hit on a new configurations of brain stimulation, and hence produce entirely new emotions in your head which would never otherwise show up there. You might - theoretically - even hit on the combination that will put you in the state of nirvana. But that’s not music. That’s escape. Who wants it?"
– From “We can build you” by Philip K. Dick
