Assuming your music company is an legitimate business, they won't help you with not paying taxes since they aren't planning on evading it and getting in trouble. Therefore, they will report any and all actual payments to any required government and make any deductions required beforehand. Since they report your income already, there will be an obvious record of with the government to trace for any tax requirements. If you are seriously thinking of avoiding the income tax even with the record of the payment being so obvious, I would guess that you need to set up a dummy business and have that be where the earnings actually get paid to. Then you need to make sure that your association with the business can't be easily traced which means possibly having to had made the setup via another dummy business(off shore) or third party. The cost of all these including hiring shady CPAs to guide you through any legal tax loopholes along the process would cost more than what you earn probably.
Basically, don't bother trying to evade income tax on proper income submitted by legitimate businesses that file taxes. Since they already report everything on that particular revenue stream. You can't evade it if it's already on file.

Go to a crypto country like Portugal or a family friendly taxes country.

You only need to stay in Portugal for 6 months and 1 day more.
Then in your other country you need to stay 5 months and 30 days.

Doing this is legal, because you are a Portugal resident and you spend more than 50% of the year there. Only that the rest of the time you are in other country on vacation or work.

Details like this are very important to me. I'm going on a world tour soon, and since I'll be on the road for years, I have to find a way to avoid paying taxes. I think I should open a company in a country like portugal or romania and move on.
There must be such roads for someone who travels constantly, right?

Also, the music company/distributor I get paid the most is dystrokid. and I've been getting paid for about 2 years, still no one knocked on my door, I think tax affairs in Turkey are just getting started on this issue.

Even if you set up company offshore you still have to pay taxes on a personal level because you live in Turkey.There is something called controlled foreign company rules.

By the way, maybe 1800-2000 dollars may seem small to you, I don't know, or I may be stingy in your eyes, but the music companies I work with get a 15% share. In total, 30% is deducted from my earnings. This is equivalent to 2 months' salary of an average person in Turkey.

and I am also preparing to travel the world, so please excuse me for worrying about every dollar out of my pocket, I won't be going back to this country for years anyway.

If Turkey find out what you are doing Turkey can extradite you back.

The tax havens and "tax evasions" you usually see in the news or hear about are usually for money they earned not from a job that is easy to track but from other sources. For those people the big portion of their income isn't from the direct salary but from all the extra bonuses which are harder to track and report. Also, maintaining such setup requires thousands per month in USD at a minimum, some times tens of thousands. It isn't about how cost of living is cheaper where you are so the same amount gets you more, it's simply the price of running these things on an international level.
