Hüma Utku is back at EMS. Born and raised in Istanbul and based in Berlin, she is an electronic music composer and sound artist. Utku combines her musical practice with her academic studies in psychology through her works drawing inspiration from human condition, psychology and folklore.
With an overall disregard for genres, she utilises melody and sound as tools for storytelling. Since 2016 Utku has been touring across Europe and the Middle east extensively.
Her 2018 EP release Şeb-i Yelda and her 2019 debut album Gnosis, through Karlrecords, earned Utku recognition for her unique approach of storytelling through electronic music.
In 2021, she was selected as a SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe) artist.
During her time in Stockholm, she will be working at EMS periodically in November/December.
