Composer, Pianist, Producer
[This text has been translated electronically] The composer, pianist and producer Kaan Bulak moves fluidly between contemporary composition, improvisation, club culture and sound art. As an artist in residence at the ZKM Karlsruhe and Fellow of #beethoven, he worked with artists such as Robert Lippok, Anastasia Kobekina, Simon Höfele and the ensemble reflektor. At the same time, Bulak developed an »Augmented Piano«, an electronic extension of the classical concert grand piano with the aid of a specially designed loudspeaker. As a soloist or with his string ensemble, he has already performed on a wide variety of stages, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Verbier Festival, Beethovenfest Bonn, Schloss Elmau, Mozartfest Würzburg, Konzerthaus Berlin or the Sonár Istanbul. In 2020 he composed the String Quartet No. 2 »Sieben Letzte Worte« as a commission for the Bayerischer Rundfunk.
