About Me and My Work
For as long as I can remember, music has been my passion. I started playing the guitar, which ultimately became a momentous aspect of my life. I realized that music is the only industry I want to be part of. As a musician, taking sound design courses from Dr. Ufuk Önen during my undergrad helped me quickly dive into the endless possibilities the audible spectrum can provide. I started creating electronic music during these years. Then I began to develop a new interest in music production as a result of the hours I spent working in DAWs and collaborating with other musicians. I decided to become a sound engineer.
After graduating from Bilkent University, I moved to Montréal, Québec, to learn more about studio practices, where I studied sound and music recording at Recording Arts Canada. I gained experience in world-class studios such as Studio Piccolo, Ton of Bricks Studio, and the National Film Board of Canada. Besides these, I continued to operate independently and serve many clients from my home studio.
I completed my master’s in music at Istanbul Technical University – Center for Advanced Studies in Music (MIAM). My specialization is sound engineering and design. In addition to overseas post-production projects, mainly from Canada and the UK, I also work as a sound engineer on local projects such as live sound and recording concerts.
During my time in Canada, Türkiye, and Japan, I had the privilege to collaborate with internationally acclaimed musicians, composers, producers, audio engineers, sound designers, and film directors. Over the years, I had the honor of collaborating with: Angèle Dubeau, Carol Welsman, Nicki Parrott, Yuko Ando, Ichiko Aoba, Tomohiro Yahiro, Jim O’Rourke, Akira Sakata, Judith Gruber-Stitzer, Ichiyo Izawa, Darren Moore, KIRINJI and many others. The films I was part of were screened/broadcasted in 15 countries including, Canada, the US, and the UK.
I deliver Apple Digital Masters (Mastered for iTunes-MFiT).
