Lars L. Lien is a an authority on the fine arts, which has by 2016 established him as a world renowned producer, composer and poet.
His debut album, The Higher Astral, featuring the house tracks ‘You Keep On Runnin’ and 'Summer,' and the electronica piece ‘Innocence,’ which is characteristic for its use of baroque melodics, was released November 30, 2014. The groundbreaking, 4-part work The Other Side, was released in 2015, and a new 4 track showing his affinity for classical compositional styles and music, Saturn's Voice in the Woods, on the 9th of August, 2016; and it is noteworthy, Lien resides in Bergen, the same town as the former classical composer, Edvard Grieg. The Monsoon & My Survival EP is also an inspired work, fronting the Leftfield D'n'B tune, 'My Survival,' which features his own vocals; and December 2016 saw him release the When I am Free EP, a politically motivated and musically diverse project, featuring the sophisti-pop song, 'The Witch,' and an ambient rock anthem, 'JL Seagull (The Wave Song),' for which The Doors and his distant relative, by marriage, the late Johnny Cash, have been a musical influence. 2017, with the release of a full 13 track house music album and the epic EP, The Sun, is destined to be his year.
With this EP release and the politically motivated The Other Side, Lars L. Lien seeks to establish himself as an avant-garde composer of electronic art music in possession of an unparalleled level of skill and musicality; the introductory piece, The Other Side, pt.I: Den andre siden, is majestic, thrilling and profoundly frightening. ‘Kali Durga’ is a modernist work of some magnitude, loosely inspired by Arne Nordheim’s The Tempest, and written in an hitherto unknown scale; and 'Dawn,' and the emanative, estranging 'The Sphere as Opposed to Circles,' are fine works.
Lars L. Lien is also a remarkable poet. From All Sorts, Lies of a Kind (2014)
"The techniques are timeless; And life it changes thus When the wand is polarized And expands the mind"
(excerpt, 'The Kriyavans'). Some of his finest poems, among them Lien's tribute to Seamus Heaney,
can be found on his facebook promotional page and Google+ website, where is also fronted his unique skills
and profound chess knowledge, which includes notable advances as regards opening theory.
Lien, full name Lars Lønøy Lien, considers the ambient work 'Zen' to be a masterpiece, and his finest.
