Considered a child prodigy in her native Turkey, AyseDeniz made her concerto debut at the tender age of 9, which saw her playing JS Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No. 5 with the Gordion Chamber Orchestra. By 13 years old she had already performed as a soloist with many different orchestras, and has from that time played a major festivals around the world, including Moscow’s Musical Kremlin Festival, and Wavelength Festival, in California. AyseDeniz has appeared on TV and radio, as well as in magazines, including Classic FM, The Voice Of Russia, Vogue Turkey, and Prog Rock Magazine.
AyseDeniz found viral success when she published three piano arrangements of Pink Floyd songs in the style of Franz Liszt, which gained her attention from prog rock fans. Pink Floyd themselves featured her on their official Facebook and Twitter accounts. Fans requested she take the concept a step further, seeing her record a full album, called ‘Pink Floyd Classical Concept’, which has been released both on iTunes and as a limited hardcopy edition.

AyseDeniz’s album, ‘Nirvana Project’, saw her merging classical grunge and electronic beats of music producer and DJ Ivan Shopov. Dedicated to Kurt Cobain, the album was released in November 2015 and shot to the top 10 of the UK Classical Charts on iTunes.
Other work includes ‘Close Up’, a modern dance project with the Editta Braun Company, for which AyseDeniz wrote original music, and arranged and performed Thierry Zaboitzeff’s music, premiering in Vienna, Salzburg, and Edinburgh.
Currently, AyseDeniz is working on two albums, one of classical hits, and her own work, and one surprise cover project of a rock/pop group.
