Her original minimalist-romantic piano albums ‘Earth Prelude’ & ‘Motus’ released in 2019 & 2020 reached millions of streams.
She performed sold out concerts in Italy, Argentina, Portugal, Spain, Germany, UK, USA, Bulgaria, Russia and Turkey, igniting the love for piano in people.
BBC Music Magazine named her a “rising star”, and she appeared on Classic FM, BBC News UK, The Herald Scotland, as well as Le Figaro France.

Motus is a collection of short piano pieces AyseDeniz Gokcin wrote inspired by moments from her daily life, travels and nature. The title Motus (meaning motion) represents the movement of emotions through music. Each track in the album represents an experience, such as returning home from a wildfire, watching art cars at Burning Man, or the cyclical patterns of the ocean waves.
AyseDeniz has always wanted to shoot music videos in her favourite place and a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Cappadocia. Just like what she does at home since childhood and at her concerts, she selected 7 tracks ranging from many genres: from Beethoven to Coldplay, Linkin Park to her original compositions. Below is the vlog on how they shot them in 2.5 days and the 7 videos! Enjoy and subscribe to her YouTube channel if you like them!
