Shine is Carl Liungman’s Album
I am very impressed by the music proposed by this artist.
Melodies that have the ability to warm the heart. The refinement of these songs is undeniable and you immediately realize that you are dealing with a fantastic artist with a great compositional experience behind him.
The chord progression and harmonic intuitions are out of the ordinary and Carl Liungman’s interpretative ability gives goosebumps.
All the songs included in Shine are solid and mature. While listening to this beautiful music I closed my eyes and was transported to a parallel universe. I saw the spring rain fall on me. I saw colorful forests tinged with beautiful colors and above all, for a moment I felt truly free.
This music is therapeutic and I recommend everyone treat themselves to this beautiful experience.
Shine is Carl Liungman’s Album Out Now!
Powerful and Epic!
Shine is Carl Liungman’s Album
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.
