Meet Armaan Biviji

Today we’d like to introduce you to Armaan Biviji.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started off as a rock guitarist from Mumbai, India. In the fall of 2015, I attended the Berklee College of Music where I expanded my interests to the fields of composing and arranging for ads and media and writing for orchestra and large jazz ensembles. Currently, I work as a freelance film music composer looking at a move to the west coast.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I spent a year in NYC trying to land various opportunities but struggled to get solid deals come my way. I realized this wasn’t merely due to the circumstance of things, but moreover consequential of the career path confusion I was going through. I flitted from self-identifying as an electronic producer to a marketing and strategic analyst rep for record labels; I tried to start a song library LLC of my own and even thought I could probably give broadway writing a shot. It was until I firmly landed on writing for film that I gained the confidence to brand myself as swiss-knifed film composer. That’s when the opportunities started coming through at a more consistent and validating rate.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
A multi-instrumentalist writer and arranger, having graduated from Berklee College of Music, I currently work as a film music composer. I do cinematic and lush, dreamy epic; rivetingly action-packed; enigmatic and stunted; modern and electronic; and various other styles. What in my opinion that sets me apart is the breadth of the various styles of writing I have to offer for each project.

What were you like growing up?
I always enjoyed watching films. Going to the movies was a weekly family endeavor, and a movie would play in the house almost every other night after dinner. Besides that, I was quite a rebellious kid. Had a fun set of teen years playing guitar all night, trying not to wake up the neighbors.
