I am an Armenian New Yorker – a lover of life who is a Worldling more importantly – who writes mélange-of-music, performs, records, has films to compose scores for and various other collaborative|educational projects to lead and participate mostly in New York, but also in CA, Yerevan, Paris, Colombia and everywhere! I am adamant about my music not being categorized under any particular genre for my influences and inspirations are from fairy-tales to real life, from rock and Jazz to dreams, and from folk and Armenian to classical. I am an open and passionate provocateur against stagnancy, and any bias or structure of unreasoning collectivism. I am a proud daughter of talented and inspiring parents, and a loving sister to my incredible sisters and brother. Above all though, I am someone who is continuously and enthusiastically striving to become the best of herself that’s in tune with the higher logic of our planet and essence here.

“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!”
