    About me

    Kerem Isik is an audio engineer, producer and performer, with experience working with other artists, producers and filmmakers. His background as an audio engineer as well as a composer and performer makes him suitable to work in a wide variety of environments.

    Kerem is fueled by his passion of sound, pushing him to learn and work in every stage of an audio related production. Knowing that UK is the current capital of the European music and film industries, he moved from Istanbul to London to offer his services at this ever growing multi-cultural environment.

    After he obtained his BA from Istanbul Bilgi University on music composition and sound engineering, and his Jazz Education Diploma from Istanbul Bahcesehir University, he moved to London to expand his studies at the University of Westminster on Music Business Management (PgCert) He then completed a Middlesex University certified course at Point Blank Music School on Music Production & Sound Engineering (CertHE with Distinction) to observe the british approach on sound engineering and cover some extra topics.

    Starting his music career as a vocalist, keyboardist and a guitarist, he played in countless bands covering a wide array of genres. Before arriving in London for his studies, he contributed Gozde Oney’s LP, ‘’Iki Golge’’ as a performer and sound designer which got fully synced to the mainstream Turkish series, Kalp Atisi.

    While studying his BA, he did live sound engineering in established events like Sofar and did field recording, mixing, composing and producing soundtracks for various festival short films; including Innocence (displayed at Venice Film Week, Los Angeles Cinefest and Sofia Menar Film Festival) and Stolen Memories (Displayed at Akbank Film Festival).
