Along with my architecture, singing is one of the deepest and greatest communication channels for me to connect with my inner-self, soul, feelings and to express myself to the outer world "as a social introvert". I believe that this is a holistic experience as well: While singing, I feel a strong dialog with my emotions, feelings, mind and body, and more importantly, my wholeness through my voice as a human being!
I can sing two octaves from E3 to G5, my vocal range is mezzo-soprano, and my favorite music genres to sing is usually alternative and folk-rock. My current intention is to improve my vocal expressiveness and techniques in order to be able to use my voice in a much more creative and effective way; and to find and explore its artistic potential. I am open to establish productive and creative dialogs with other singers and musicians to learn and exchange recent information on voice exercises and techniques; and collaborative projects in music and singing to improve and make progress together.
My favorite instrument is bass guitar as a music lover, and my musician of all time is Stanley Clarke, Grammy-winning bassist, producer and composer in jazz. My music band of all time is King Crimson (progressive rock).
When I listened to Stanley's bass guitar during his live performance with Omar Hakim, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter at the Istanbul Open Theater in 1991, I admired how he was a real master in his technic and artistic expressiveness. In addition to him, I really enjoy listening to some pioneering bass, electro and acoustic guitarists in jazz, rock and their subgenres, such as Marcus Miller, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Stern, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, Dave Holland, Eberhard Weber, Robert Fripp, Tony Levin (and Stick Men featuring Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter), Andrew Keeling, a multi-faceted composer, musicologist and musician (in progressive rock, classical music), Jimmy Page with Sarp Maden, Gurol Agirbas, two Turkish bass guitarists in jazz, Erkan Ogur, pioneer of fretless guitar, composer and guitarist in Turkish folk music, Bulent Ortacgil, Turkish composer, singer, guitarist in folk-rock and relevant music genres, and MFO, one of the leading Turkish rock and pop band since 1971.
