21st meeting, Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

MoKS presents:
with Vahram Muradyan
Wednesday, February 29th
Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu

This month we receive a visit from Tartu-resident Vahram Muradyan. In his own words:


Muradyan (aka vahrammuradyan) is a multi-instrumental experimental vocal artist. He was born in 1983 in Armenia. After graduating from secondary piano school at the Yerevan State Conservatory he started making goa-trance music on four-track recorders. After a couple of airings on a local radio station and in clubs he quit and continued improvising on piano, waiting for better software to come.

In 2004-2007 Muradyan went on recording and mixing beats and acoustic noises on a low-fi recorder, adding electronic sounds and eventually collected them as the Heart Cocktail album to conclude that period.

Songs About The Sona San appeared shortly after in 2008.

Muradyan’s next album Cutcult (Raw Cut)(2009) reveals his old interest in hip-hop: “collages mixed of different samples from different times and genres exhaling crunchy rhythmic hip hop sound”, as is written on his website. The album was released as 50 hand-made signed copies.

The newest album Lepiku Cradles Live is a collection of best tracks played live in audio/visual performances called “Cradles”. This was a collaboration with VJ Sveta Bogomolova.

Now he's working on a series of vocal compositions recorded in one take using loops and various self-developed multilayer techniques. First track of the series is called "Things Adi found in a drawer of an abandoned hotel room" ( )
