Armen Bazarian (born November 18, 1986 in Toronto, Canada) is a Toronto-based singer, songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist with Armenian origins. In recent years, Bazarian has worked as a composer for film and TV, including the Emmy nominated show Miss Persona.[1][2]

Education

Bazarian studied psychology at McGill University where he was a research assistant for Daniel Levitin, studying the relationship between music and the tolerance to pain.

In 2013, Bazarian deepened his studies in psychology and received a Master's degree in Development Psychology from the University of Toronto.[3]

Career

Since graduating, Bazarian has worked as a freelance composer working for several post audio houses in Toronto including Eggplant Productions, Keen Music and Apollo Studios.

In 2015, Bazarian was selected as one of three composers-in-residence for the Canadian Film Centre's Slaight Music Residency, chaired by Oscar-winning composer Mychael Danna.

In 2018, Bazarian moved to Armenia where he taught music production at the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies. There, Bazarian started working on his debut EP Sight Lines to be released later in 2020 in collaboration with Carmen Elle (DIANA, Army Girls).[4][5][6]
