what an awesome landscape….
viken arman killing it live.. and what a location to hang and grab a drink?
of armenian heritage, viken arman is a french producer, born and raised in paris.
sorry for being lazy I have nothing much to say other that i enjoyed this clip and the music, in case you are interested about him here is a blurb not written by me: “viken arman, along with a generation of like-minded artists, is pushing the boundaries of electronic music not only towards the future, but also towards the past. fusing ancient melodies with electronic beats to create magical vibes that go beyond dance music brings rich cultures together in mystical musical journeys. growing up with jazz and classical music, he draws influence from a very versatile music background from keith jarett, erik satie, bill evans, jay dilla, ricardo villalobos to the arabic diva oum khalthoum. his knowledge of piano as well as his time at the music conservatory contributed to his wide musical culture. as an artist, viken is really close to this roots & history. «never forget, never, but stay turned towards the future, rebuild yourself and go forward» he said regarding TIME, the 100 mins musical creation he composed for the 100th year anniversary of the armenian genocide. when he’s not making music, viken focuses his energy to support and nurture this particular and rich music scene even further. he founded denature records which, as he describes it, is more than just a label but more of a family of artists. he also pledged to support young and upcoming talents from around the world as well as organizing his own events with the SOUQ festival. his music is ingrained with organic influences and reveals the passionate explorer that he embodies”. by dd
