about

“Lovely Mystical Electronics!” (Richard Dorfmeister / Tosca / Kruder & Dorfmeister)

Ah! Kosmos – has created a wonder that she holds us in the middle of. Also known as Başak Günak, a sound designer, producer and multi-instrumentalist born in Istanbul, her tracks open up a space that draws the listener into a state of flow.

In her second album – "Beautiful Swamp" – she combines crackling percussions with melodic soundscapes. Deep in the fabric of her tracks are also fears, rapture, bliss, and gloom. Günak’s music captures what she has processed and overcome in her life between Istanbul and Berlin. The listener not only explores soundscapes but multi-layered emotions each layer drawing them further into the swamp.
