🥇 Winner of Hollywood Independent Music Award for Contemporary Classical 2023

“It is annoying for us mortals that AyseDeniz seems to have it all. She simply oozes musical creativity, displays stunning virtuosity and mastery of her instrument, and to make matters worse, she is fun, hilarious, kind to animals, and generally delightful. It simply is not fair.”

- Andrew Sunnucks, Founder, Chairman, Audio Network



Patterns Album comprises 13 original compositions by AyseDeniz and marks a milestone in her career, celebrating the first time her compositions have been recorded with a 22-piece string orchestra. The album, released in June 2023, produced by Audio Network, is composed with the intention of being used in TV, film, and other media.



As a concert pianist, I've always dreamed of composing for a live orchestra and playing alongside them my own music. Many of these compositions echo my classical roots, being notably pianistic. Yet, they are also infused with the inspiration drawn from myriad film scenes, each written as though narrating a story or crafting a unique experience for listener.


I devoted over a year to this album. I began working on it after relocating to LA during the height of the pandemic, uncertain of what the future held. Creating this album was a journey of emotional exploration, allowing feelings to evolve and crystallize into music over time. The dream of writing for an orchestra and piano was always there, but actual composition proved challenging. There were moments of intense productivity, punctuated by periods of silent contemplation—a typical creative's life. Inspiration, after all, is unpredictable; it either strikes or it doesn't.


The concept behind the 'Patterns' album revolves around layering notes akin to weaving fabric. Imagine each thread as a note, and when seen through a macro lens, these threads interlace to form patterns of recurring and evolving emotions.


Each track starts with a simple idea, but by the end, it blossoms into a new perspective and understanding of the initial concept. Much like our personal evolutions over time, these pieces mirror the dynamic nature of character development.
