Ed Carlsen

Ed Carlsen is a composer and producer from Sardinia, 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, Carlsen 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 three albums, released under Moderna Records between 2016 and 2019.
