The Miniature, a visual art form popular during the Ottoman Empire, was used to represent important events in compact paintings. Miniatures Set No.4 (2013) is a five movement suite based on Turkish folk dances and instrumental song styles. Although all of the material is original, these movements are highly influenced by the playing styles of master performers of previous centuries. "Sirto" is a fast 2/4 dance which is also shared with Greeks and very common on the European side of Turkey. "Saz Semaisi" is an instrumental section that is used in religious rituals and in Ottoman court music. This movement later turns to a çiftetelli, which is a type of belly dance. "Bolu Oyun Havası" is a 2/4, medium tempo dance from northern Turkey. "Taksim" is a very common improvisational movement which is a modal preparation to a song or an instrumental piece in traditional Turkish music. "Sıksaray Horon Havası" is a very fast dance in 7/16 from northeast Turkey. This dance is commonly played by a small string instrument called a kemençe. With the extended techniques of string playing, the whole ensemble imitates the sound that is produced by this instrument. Although in folk and traditional music the meters would stay the same throughout each movement, in this set of miniatures the meters change freely for fun as well as aesthetic purposes, since dancing is not a part of the performance of the piece.
