Affection & Absence is Carl Liungman’s Ep Out Now

Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Carl Liungman in the past but this talented artist is back with a new Ep and I want to share my opinion about it.

Affection & Absence is Carl Liungman’s Ep Out Now

I had already noticed the compositional skills of this artist the first time I listened to his music. In this fantastic Ep, this feeling is reconfirmed.

A thousand harmonic nuances season these beautiful melodies and it is a real pleasure to immerse yourself in Carl Liungman’s sound universe.

The first track, Affection made me imagine being under the first spring rain while Dancer made me see the first yellow leaves of autumn fall on the ground.

Night places you in a bar where a solitary jazzman entertains you while you drink a Cosmopolitan. Disappear is perhaps the most introspective and nostalgic track… this tune moved me a lot. Twilight and intense, I found an ancestral meaning in the “silence” between one chord and another.

Liungman’s creativity allows him to indulge in a wide range of deep, conflicting emotions.

Absolutely reconfirmed, 10 out of 10!

Affection & Absence is Carl Liungman’s Ep Out Now!


Pure and Deep!


Affection & Absence is Carl Liungman’s Ep Out Now

The EP ’AFFECTION & ABSENCE’ reveals 4 original piano pieces in a mix of Jazz and Neoclassical style and is an even more intimate and personal solo piano release than the previous SHINE from 2022. Carl Liungman describes his new EP as an instrumental story telling about the hardships of love and intimacy. An examination of absence and presence

Carl Liungman is a Neoclassical pianist and composer based in Southern Sweden. During the years he has developed a musical universe based on improvisation; an emotive expressionistic music style of his own with both rhythmic tension and gentle tunes.

Carl is influenced by Neoromanticism, Neoclassicism and modern Minimalism as well as Jazz music, contemporary Film music scores and Pop music. He is particularly fond of displaying the contrasts of the light, harmonic structures of the 18th and 19th centuries together with Jazz, Pop and complex Contemporary music structures.

In early years Carl recognized a certain ability to remember melodies, compose songs and improvise on the piano. He also found a personal way of playing and has today developed a unique piano music style and technique of his own.

Carl studied Classical piano under Krista Nieländer in Malmo, Jazz piano under Christian Colan and Maggie Olin at the Malmo Jazz Institute and Jazz theory under Jazz pianist Alvaro Is-Rojas at the Kulturama Performing Arts School in Stockholm. From Lund University Carl has got a Bachelor’s degree in Musicology. At the Stockholm University he studied Film music. He also has studied composition at the Gotland School of Music under composer Per Mårtensson and Prof. Sven-David Sandström and at the Malmö Academy of Music under Prof. Hans Gefors.

Carl has written both Chamber and Pop music for theatre plays, short films, art installations and poetry projects. He also has made Jazz poetry together with poets and singers, improvising piano music during poetry slams and other occasions. For several years in his youth Carl was hired as a bar pianist in Sweden.

Influences among others: Keith Jarrett, Björk, E.Satie, Stravinskij, Beatles, Chopin, Satie, Herbie Hancock, Esbjörn Svensson, Arvo Pärt, Monk, Charlie Parker, Glen Gould, Jean-Michel Jarre, Skrjabin, Busoni, Jan Johansson, Coldplay.
