About Me

Hi! I'm Metehan Köktürk and I'm a

I'm a sound engineer & designer, collaborating as a sound artist & electronic music composer in various independent collectives, and also performing as a DJ around Istanbul.

I'm also a multi-instrumentalist playing mainly electric & acoustic guitar, but also the piano, violin, clarinet and various ethnic instruments such as 3-string baglama.

I like to use my instrumental understanding to approach various musicians from the sensitivity of a musician and a performer when it comes to music production.

As a former software engineer I used to work for one of the most used information and telecomunication technologies’ company. Nowadays I am combining my skills to enter the music scene from a personal perspective.

When I'm not lost in sound waves, I like to take photographs of the nature or city life, sometimes a bunch of light or a frame of texture. Or just fooling around with my longboard.
