Born in in 1973 in Istanbul, Turkey and educated in Austria (Master degree in Information Management) Tan has been living in two cultures for all his life.
He has been composing music since he was 14. Having learned to play piano and organ it was a logical step to dive into the world of electronic music and synthesizers. Having worked as a DJ in the beginning 1990s Tan was always influenced by the House and Trance styles. His first published work was Mare Imbrium on the internationally acclaimed album Binfen by Murat Ses in 1993.
Tan loves to program sounds and dive into the infinite possibilities of electronic music and synth programming.
His first album was the 2015 released "Anatolian Echoes" which is a sort of diary about a trip throughout Anatolia; the ancient region where myriads of different cultures flourished and intermixed creating a plethora of cultural diversity over the millennia leaving their footprints in the traditional music.
The second release (released in 2016) "Barren Plateaux" describes the experiences of silence and tranquility in the desert, the feelings of being one with nature in these unique moments where you only feel the arid air and the hot winds that scorched the landscape for thousands of years.
His third release (released in 2018) “Cybele’s Dream” depicts dream-like glimpses through the closed eyes of the ancient Anatolian goddess Cybele (who was called Mater Magna - Great Mother in the Roman Empire) her inner eye wandering over the various locations and peoples who formed the cultural heritage of Asia Minor. Time and locations change rapidly as the Urartu, Hitites, Phrygian, Galata Celts and Seljuks are in the endless search for immortality each in their own way.
Tan tries to express his cultural heritage with music but also as a painter and photographer. He believes that art has different ways to be expressed and there should be no difference between the various forms of expression.
