Biography

Aydin Esen (born 1962) keyboards/electronics - contemporary composer Esen started at 2 as a student of his father and a few years later for piano and composition at the Conservatory of Istanbul. In those very early childhood years he started hearing, creating and writing music. His father was a musician and his first teacher and that pulled young Aydin Esen into infinitive worlds of sounds.

Continiuously composing and playing new music while dealing with the academic attitudes of the time and how frustrating that was to make people understand and get used to new sounds. Esen even changed some of the rules of harmonic theories while he was at the conservatory which had been centuries ago. Lived with electronics which he believed was simply an inescapable extension of acoustical music that most of the 20th century composers did avoid. Dealing with the problems of the modern music of our times before he was 10 and that intense focus naturally would take him to different levels of sound galaxies.

Leaving Istanbul at the beginning of the 1980s he was invited to the Norwegian State Academy of Music in Oslo for advanced studies in piano, composition and conducting. Toured Europe with different ensembles and worked as a studio musician everywhere. His feel on keyboards and knowledge for contemporary music was known. In 1983, he left for the United States.
