I am Prof. Dr. Ozan Yarman. I am a Turkish composer, pianist and music theorist.

Though educated in Classical Western music, I am intensely engaged in microtonality and maqam theories. I achieved the title of “Doctor of Musicology” in 2008 and “Associate Professor of Musicology and Music Theories” in 2011.

I spearheaded the MELM > www.mtonalist.org Event in December 2011. Discovering the physical-mathematical foundations of tones and harmonies enchant me.

I have great curiosity toward Mu’tazilite discourse, cosmology, physics, nature, history and socio-politics.

I renewed this internet page in April 2009 and updated it on January 2018. It is best viewed with Firefox and Chrome web browsers (under Mac ).
