Hüma Utku, born and raised in Istanbul based in Berlin, is an electronic music composer and sound artist. Utku combines her musical practice with her academic studies in psychology through her works drawing inspiration from human condition, psychology and folklore. With an overall disregard for genres, she utilises melody and sound as tools for storytelling. Her 2018 EP 'Şeb-i Yelda' and her 2019 debut album 'Gnosis', through Karlrecords, earned Utku recognition for her unique approach of storytelling through electronic music. In May 2022, her sophomore album ''The Psychologist'' was released by Editions Mego.
Since 2016, she has presented her work and performed across Europe and the Middle east; including performances in Atonal Berlin, HKW, Radialsystem, in Berlin/DE; Salon IKSV in Istanbul/TR, Donaufestival and Musikprotokoll in Austria, Forte Prenestino in Rome/IT, Today's Art in Netherlands, Insomnia Festival in Norway and many others. Her work has received notable media from platforms such as The Wire, Noisey, RollingStone, Redbull Music, Groove Mag, Gonzo Circus, BBC Radio 3, RAI 3, ORF , Resonance FM and Sveriges Radio.
In 2021, Utku has been selected as a SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe) artist.
