What If (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Biography

Swiss composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Liam Phan got his start in the music world through his soundtrack projects and piano compositions.

His creative approach resonates with styles he has been influenced by since childhood, such as classical, neoclassical, jazz, and electronic. Always open to a wide range of sounds allowed by analog and digital instruments, Liam explores harmonies and rhythms in the service of films and commercials. What If in 2020 became his first film project, followed by Paloma in 2021. These films have a very personal and intimate feel to them and teach him the power of minimalism in music. Born on 17th January 2000, Liam started playing the piano at the age of 7 after being moved by the film August Rush. He first began with classical repertoires such as Chopin, Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff, and deviated from this path once he reached college. He composed his first soundtracks at the age of 14, using advertisements as raw material. Jazz and the art of improvisation were taught to him shortly afterward at school by Moncef Genou, a renowned pianist and composer. He also discovered the beauty of stringed instruments during courses at the Geneva Conservatory for his high school diploma. In parallel, Liam continued his studies in economics and management at the University of Geneva and graduated in 2022. As his music was until then only heard in a small circle, he decided to produce his albums and release them on all platforms.
