About Me

I'm a theoretical physicist and musician with a touch of nihilism. I love peanut butter, fountain pens, and Debussy. I build aquatic ecosystems, ferment chilli peppers an play obscure music instruments. My house looks like a rainforest. I love thrift stores, jazz, and children's poetry. A passionate contrarian, a fire worshipper, and a friend of entropy and chaos, but still mildly charming. Instagram: derviscanvural

Music, Movies, and Books

I compose music at the interface of impressionism, modernism, bebop jazz and folklore. Think of Debussy meets Shostakovich meets Chick Corea at the Andean mountains, and they are all mildly confused about why they are there.
