Ed Carlsen is a composer and producer from Italy. He blends elements from modern classical music, such as intimate piano and strings, with electronic beats and ambient soundscapes. Professionally trained as a guitarist, it was not until 2015 that Ed began to translate these skills onto piano, using his own compositions as the foundation in which to discover the instrument. This gave him an unconventional approach to the piano, whilst retaining the musicality that he had developed through his studies of guitar. Seeking to marry this musical knowledge with production techniques, Ed pursued a degree in Music Technology at the London College of Music, where he gained an interest in sound design and music composition for film and visual media. That became the vision for his debut EP ‘The Journey Tapes’, released by Canadian label Moderna Records in 2016. This was followed by two more solo works on the same label, ‘Elusive Frames’ (2017) and 'Morning Hour' (2019). Ed Carlsen’s music has now been acknowledged by media outlets such as BBC, Elle, Exclaim!, Magnetic Magazine and more. In the summer 2020, Ed’s song ‘Cage’ was featured on Netflix sci-fi drama series Warrior Nun, by Simon Barry.
