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, and offers high-end location recording services with a select collection of microphones and crystal clear conversion.

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 uses this highly technical skillset to bring a unique and innovative sound to electronic dance music, rap, and pop.


Providing the most artistically informed service in the city, Murat is an Apple Digital Masters provider and recipient of an advanced certificate in audio mastering from the Mastering Academy in Hamburg. 

His mentors include mastering engineers Friedemann Tischmeyer and Pieter Snapper
