A native of Istanbul, Turgut Erçetin studied composition and completed his doctorate studies at Stanford University with Brian Ferneyhough as his advisor. His current works engage with issues of sound, not as sonic colors but as entities that are perceived at various degrees of complexities as a result of composed acoustics. His solo, chamber and electro-acoustic works have been performed throughout the US and Europe with notable performances at Ultraschall, MaerzMusik, Gaudeamus Festival, Manifeste and many other festivals. Erçetin has collaborated with pioneering ensembles such as The Arditti Quartet, The JACK Quartet, ELISION Ensemble and Ensemble Mosaik as well as many others.
