The Parisian-Armenian Viken Arman’s new record is out now
A full year after releasing his ‘Aragatz‘ EP, the new record is a five-track journey that borrows from both jazz and electronic music culture to create “powerful musical dialogue” that bridges the two genres and leads Viken on a colorful sonic tour of self-discovery.
Identifying as Parisian and Armenian, musician and producer, Viken draws from a theme of “perception” that emanates throughout the EP and the stunning artwork – created by the Armenian painter Davit Yukhanyan – brings his dazzling, jazz-infused electronica sound into the forefront with an air of mystic exploration that goes beyond dance music.
The project has been divided into six parts. Each track has been given a poetic emotional perspective and piece of original artwork that is linked to show listeners that “the way we see ourselves is not only the way we live our lives but also the way we relate to others.”
