“I think one of the great things of coming from a band background, is that with every song or theme you write, you have the audience in mind, because you’ll play it live in a week and you have to win their hearts.”
Martin Byrial is a Danish composer most widely known for his work as composer, singer, and synthesist with the anthemic post-rock group LISERSTILLE, with whom he was part of a post-rock revival in Scandinavia in the early millennium. A band created to set music to paintings.
Rolling Stone Magazine’s David Fricke wrote in 2006: “LISERSTILLE make a Grand Prolonged Boom, combining Sigur Rós glazed crawl with early riff-centric Flaming Lips and the explosive Payoff of Pink Floyds “Careful with that Axe, Eugene”. And they are just getting started..”
Music for paintings evolved into music for stories, and the stories evolved into 7 albums with the band. Then into solo work. For the concert hall and for film.
