Deniz is a com­po­ser and sound desi­gner who explo­res the inter­sec­tions of music and lan­guage, inten­ti­on, and hap­py accidents.

As part of lev, he aims to accom­pa­ny youn­ger and older enthu­si­asts on their sonic explo­ra­ti­ons. He codes digi­tal ran­dom instru­ments with child­ren and teen­agers, allo­wing par­ti­ci­pan­ts to free­ly impro­vi­se as a noi­se orches­tra using game cards. For adults (beg­in­ners and advan­ced stu­dents in pri­va­te les­sons, sound design stu­dents, and music edu­ca­tors), he offers cour­ses in Max, Able­ton, as well as diver­se work­shops on com­po­si­ti­on, sound design, and "Music with Tablets." For him, the empha­sis is never sole­ly on con­vey­ing tech­ni­cal aspects but rather on nur­tu­ring the indi­vi­du­al aes­the­tic, artis­tic, or pedago­gi­cal inte­rests of the learners.
