Ayda is composing commercially for YouTube and Instagram advertisements for one of the world's leading research companies - Thermo Fisher Scientific USA Branch.

December 2020 - Ongoing

Collaborating Florida-based-author Bryce Walter, Ayda composed orchestrally-influenced, Assasin's Creed style, scores for his upcoming high-fantasy audiobook series.

April 2020 - Ongoing

Ayda scored the minimalist soundtrack for the nine-minute documentary 'Putty's Pride' to be released in late 2021. This is a melancholic story of disconnection and redundancy. The documentary follows Ross Ferrier, exploring his nostalgia of fishing on the Victorian Coast, his connection to his heritage, and what the future holds for someone forced to give up their lifelong career.

Ayda composed the score for the musical The Brink Of Womanhood: An Original Musical, successfully collaborating internationally online with writers based in the U.S. The Brink Of Womanhood: An Original Musical performed live in Chicago, Illinois in July of 2021. 

January - July 2021

Ayda's debut solo album 'Magic' - composed, recorded, performed, produced and sound-engineered solely on her own. 

Rated 4/5 by Divide and Conquer Music  "...with her tradmark, lushly-layered vocals...Magic really shines when Akbal moves from live-artist-in-a-studio mindset to a studio-artist-who-might-play-live approach."

Released August 2021
