I am a sonic artist and sound designer based in Calgary, Canada. I have a diverse background that includes sonic arts, sound design, music production, audio post-production, electroacoustic music composition and audio programming.
I have been working as a freelance sound designer since 2012. I have professional experience in ADR, dialogue editing, sound design, Foley recording, and surround mixing for TV shows and animation series, advertisements, radio dramas, and TV and theatre movies. Many projects I worked on include, but are not limited to, Frenzy (2015), which won the Special Jury Award at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, and advertisements for IKEA, HSBC, Burger King, and Turkish Airlines.
The expressive potential afforded by digital musical instruments (DMI) and interactive performance systems has always motivated me to build and develop musical interfaces. These systems and DMIs incorporate various sensors, microcontrollers and microcomputers, and aim to facilitate musical composition and performance. I utilize the developed systems and DMIs to generate sonic material, explore artistic possibilities, improvise, perform and compose.
I am currently a PhD candidate in Sonic Arts at the University of Calgary. I graduated with a Master of Music in Sonic Arts at the University of Calgary in 2018, and I hold a Bachelor of Science in Sound Design at Istanbul Technical University. I am a Killam Laureate since 2021.
