Viken Arman is a french producer, born and raised in Paris. He considers music as the mirror of his feelings. Versatile and elusive, he doesn’t restrict himself to a unique musical universe.
Since his childhood, he has been exploring various musical registers, merging and composing them according to his mood. His piano knowledge confers him a musical culture as well as an artistic ease that help him when working on his different projects (jazz, classic, film music and more recently electronic music).
His influences as varied as surprising, such as Erik Satie, Trent Reznor, Thomas Newman, Avishai Cohen, Jay Dilla, Herbie Hancock, Ricardo Villalobos, Tigran Hamasyan, Trentemoller, but also a lot of oriental musicians, represent an inexhaustible source of inspiration for this artist who started electronic music at the age of 13.
After several years building his own experience in different Parisian night clubs, he co-founded in 2009 the french collective Minimal Trip. He actively participates in promoting young and talented international artists by inviting them to Paris for their very first performance. Raising more and more attention, this collective gives Viken Arman the opportunity to demonstrate his vast talent during each one of his live performance. He has shared the stage with great artists such as Marc Romboy (Systematic), Joris Voorn (Cocoon), Stimming (Diynamic), Nôze (Circus Company), Frivolous (Cadenza), Acid Pauli (Clown & Sunset / Bar25), Tube & Berger (Kittball Records), Rampa & Re.You (Keinemusic), Niconé (Stil Vor Talent), Avatism (Vakant), Saschienne (Kompakt), Steve Rachmad (100% pure), Terranova (Kompakt), Nico Stojan (Katermukke/Bar25), Valentin Stip (Clown & Sunset), to name few...
Thanks to his work and his creativity which are more and more recognized, Viken Arman is now working on his debut album and collaborates with great artists. With his very unique own style he always remains in a contrast and surprising perspective.
