When the house was dismantled on February 14, cutting short its intended two-month installation, Tobar had already moved out, following the attack of a Santiago woman who was mistaken for her. Death threats also sent the architects into hiding.

Collection of the TRT
The TRT undertook trips to Kars, Erzurum, Van, Hakkari, Erzincan, Diyarbakir,Elazig, Urfa, Adana, Bitlis, Mus, Bingol and Siirt during 1961 and recorded melodies for their archives. During 1967-8 teams made recordings in Gaziantep, Burdur, Van,Erzurum, Izmir, Trabzon and Balikesir which are still used in their broadcasts. A one-month trip was also made to Erzurum and Kars, during which special attention was devoted to melodies in the asiklama, atislama and davul zurna class, and examples were recorded. The trip was undertaken by Nida Tufekci, Zihni Dercin and Muzaffer Yonden.
Another organization that has contributed to the research and collection of Turkish folk songs is tha Halkevleri (People's Centres) and their activities are worthy of interest.
Work started by Muzaffer Sarisozen at the Turkish Radio on collection, musical notation and broadcasts of Turkish folk music is still continuing. Today the TRT has a collection in excess of 3000 works.

LOTS of Turkish music

Kara da ginay urman, karanggi ton,
Yahshi atlar kirek le uterge;
Kara urmanni chikkan chakta,
Kisip aldim kush kayin.
Ey, ayrilmayik, duskayim.

Zamanalar avir, yillar yabik,
Dus-ish kirek omer iterge.
Kara urmanga kirgen chakta,
Kisip aldim par kayin.
Ey, ayrelmayek, duskayim.

Kara da gina yilan ay tuz bashli
Yoridir le kamish buyincha;
Kara urmanga kirgen chakta,
Kisip aldim par usak,
Ey, ayrilmayik, dus bulsak.

Yalgiz bashim, yuk yuldashim,
Yorimin le yazmish buyincha.
Kara urmanga kirgen chakta,
Kisip aldim par kayin,
Ey, ayrilmayik, duskayim.

"Just as seeds need to be watered, so artists need external nourishment.

"Now that I am in the position to offer assistance to searching guitarists, I feel flattered; and I will attempt to reveal my musical self as completely and as honestly as possible."
