In 2010, Alexei Botvinov and Burhan Öçal started the project "Goldberg. Reloaded". It was a revolutionary attempt to rethink Bach’s eternal music, combining it with the ethnorhythms of the East and lighting special effects. Öçal and Botvinov played 20 concerts on the most famous stages of the world, including Istanbul, Paris, Zurich, Basel, Abu Dhabi and Montreux Jazz Festival. 6 concerts were performed for Ukrainian audience.
In 2018, Öçal and Botvinov teamed up again for the "Reloaded-2" project. This time, they took cult masterpieces of Bach, Beethoven ("Pathetique Sonata"), Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Mussorgsky.
