Deniz Cuylan :: No Such Thing As Free Will

On No Such Thing As Free Will, LA-via-Istanbul artist Deniz Cuylan flanks his fingerpicking with subtle touches of piano, clarinet and cello. Reaching all the way back to a childhood infatuation for Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 as a guiding inspiration, the resulting musical patterns recall the repetitious, minimalist compositions of Steve Reich or Nils Frahm, but sit adjacent cosmic pastoralism too.
