Tatev is an Armenian-New Yorker, a multidisciplinary creative who was born in Armenia in 1987 and moved to the United States in 2003. Ms. Tatev is an arts entrepreneur who connects and realizes common visions of creative minds. Her music is influenced by a broad variety of musical genres as much as it is from fairy-tales, scents, puzzles, dreams, neurological expansion of our brains, and phenomena in cosmos and on our little-blue-dot of a planet. Tatev is a composer for motion pictures, pianist and a vocalist who knows that her spirit, views, faith, and work can not be categorized under any particular genre, discipline, religious or political ideology and who believes that openness, curiosity and compassion are fundamental for growth and any change. Tatev’s core band is based in New York City, in addition to film directors, dancers, institutions, scientists and artists from all over the world with whom she collaborates on numerous projects. She is a provocateur against stagnancy, and any bias of unreasoning collectivism that unfurls from fear and false divisions among us. Tatev believes in becoming the best of oneself that’s in tune with the higher logic of our essence upon this planet of ours.

“All things exist through vibrations and frequencies. Music, being the most cohesive union of sounds and vibrations, remains a mysterious phenomenon. No activity or feeling fires-up more parts of our brain than the simple act of listening to music. Having grown in a family of incredible visual artists, I became aware of the fact that sound often created its own imagery in my mind and vice versa. During my senior year of jazz studies at William Paterson University, my sister showed me one of her art works and said that the work was the sound of the wind blowing through a thin corridor between two buildings as she passed by. At that point I realized that my dream all along was to write music that would accompany a picture; even better, a motion picture! All the fairy-tales of different nations my mom read for us from books with great illustrations and unique animations I used to watch, have been a big part of what developed my imagination, world-view and ability to connect with others. Through sound and picture I do feel eternal for our most valued possession – our brain, our imagination – can create our perception of reality – which is our entire existence!”
