Pullman is a small town, but hidden throughout its streets lie big dreams and even greater talents.

Every Thursday from 6-8 p.m., Rico’s Pub hosts an event called Music on Main to showcase local artists and their many talents. Recently a local performer, Arman Bohn, performed music he wrote and produced himself.

Bohn’s music features relaxing notes with a hint of video game-esque sound effects and all of the songs he performed on Aug. 23 were his own, unique pieces. He takes his songs and brings them to a new level with his self-programmed graphics playing on a screen behind him.

The mix of video game visualization and his own singing and songwriting makes for a one-of-a-kind listening experience.

Bohn started playing music at age 6 when he learned how to play piano and his desire to perform music slowly grew from there.

“I started [getting into] music at a young age,” Bohn said. “I’ve been playing and writing music my whole life.”

Most of Bohn’s songs take over a year to write and perfect. He begins with an intense writing session and then leaves it alone for six months.

After the music and lyrics are crafted, he moves onto creating the perfect graphics to give the audience a visual representation of the song. Unlike the song writing process, the graphics can take Bohn as little as a day to complete.

Before settling down in Pullman, Bohn created and performed music as a full time job in the Seattle region throughout the 90s, producing music for record labels and performing around the state. Bohn currently works for CoreTech at WSU, fixing students’ broken laptops and other electronic devices but his passion for music remains with him.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and intriguing concert, check out Arman Bohn at his next performance Sept. 29 and 3o during the Modest Music Festival in Moscow, Idaho. There will be several other musical artists and groups performing throughout the weekend.
