Ed Carlsen is an Italian-born composer/producer based in Copenhagen. He has been making music for 20+ years, first through classical piano lessons in his early childhood and subsequently as a guitarist interested in rock, reggae, prog and classical.
Seeking to marry his musical knowledge with production techniques, Carlsen pursued studies in Music Technology at the London College of Music. There he gained an interest in sound design and making music for film and visual media.
After a long break from playing, in 2015 he once again took up the piano, but with a different approach: rather than learning through the study of other artists, he set to further his development through writing his own songs. This, combined with his newfound interests in sound design, led to his vision for The Journey Tapes.
