Murat operates Geryon Sound, a boutique music production studio in New York City, where he mixes and masters with a state-of-the-art hybrid workflow.

Murat’s doctorate in music composition, with a special focus on spectral music and psychoacoustic theory, informs a highly detail-oriented and empirical approach unlike any other. He specializes in contemporary classical / electroacoustic music and he uses this highly technical skillset to bring a unique and innovative sound to electronic dance music, rap, and pop.
