Composer and pianist Kaan Bulak writes music, performs on stage and creates sonic experiences. Influenced by his two hometowns Istanbul and Berlin, Bulak found his unique way of composing beyond geographical or cultural boundaries. In a similar fashion, Bulak disregards distinctions between acoustic and electronic instruments and performs new works and arrangements of early music with his own electro-acoustic ensemble.
On stage, electronic sounds breathe jointly with strings and resonate in classical halls through the custom 360° loudspeaker Lynch developed by Bulak in collaboration with Martion Audiosysteme. So far, Bulak’s music was presented on stages such as Philharmonie Berlin, Opernhaus Zürich, Sónar Istanbul. His cello sonata is chosen in cello classes around the globe as final exam piece. Furthermore, he is the founder of the audiovisual label and studio Feral Note.
