Tigran Hamasyan

Over the span of his almost 10-year career, Tigran Hamasyan has been no stranger to experimentation. It’s almost as though there’s no genre he won’t touch. Incorporating sounds from his vast musical repertoire, ranging from classical music and bebop jazz to heavy metal and progressive rock, his latest album “Shadow Theater” braves yet another musical soundscape: electronica.

Fortunately for us, Tigran does not wield these genres frivolously, as his compositional style is also guided by the folk sounds of his native Armenia. While the experimentations of this new album make it difficult to predict where Tigran’s sound is headed next, this track from the album demonstrates an impressive assertion of sonic independence in a label-driven music industry.
