Arzenn, a solo musical project created by Ezra Selga has so far explored the concept of belonging and identity through audio visual experiences.
Born in the Philippines, formerly residing in Singapore and country NSW, before relocating to Melbourne’s CBD, the 21-year-old has spent his primal years exploring his life as a teenager stepping into a new life in Melbourne. Concepts such as moving into adulthood and finding ways to express himself through sound and visual mediums.
The last two years saw Arzenn release a multitude of singles including Kohaku a collaboration with Banta which amassed over 180,000 streams on Spotify, additions on editorial playlist Just Chill, as well as multiple plays on Triple J and an addition to Triple J Unearthed. Though primarily considered as an indie electronic music artist, Arzenn’s live shows serve as the focus of the project. The live performance emcompassess synchronised illuminated instruments to present a story through both audio and visual means.
This year, Arzenn is moving forward with the Intermission project - his first full body of work. Aiming to blend different genres such as orchestral, lo-fi hip hop as well indie electronic music to create a series of chapters that act as a soundtrack based on recollection of important memories. The projects aspires to be both nostalgic and reflective, expressed through a positive light.
