Liam Phan is a Swiss multi-instrumentalist, sound designer, and film composer. His music combines pianos, strings, dense electronics, and percussions. He started his musical career by film scoring the awarded short film What If (2020), with 3 Best Original Score nominations, and later worked on Paloma (2021) and Watchers (2022).
Liam was born in 2000 and grew up in Geneva. There, he was influenced by a wide range of music, from classical and neoclassical to electronic. After discovering music composition at 8 years old in the film August Rush, he fell in love with the piano and the symphony orchestra.
He began jazz improvisation with his college professor, Moncef Genoud, and began to work on his album Equilibrium as his graduate work in 2018, with the precious help of his mentor and friend, the film composer Josué Vergara. Coming upon the beauty and the important role of film music, he opened himself to this art and the audio-visual field.
In 2019, he graduated from high school with an additional option in music and obtained his bachelor’s degree in economics at the University of Geneva three years later.
Liam is officially releasing his soundtracks in 2022 and plans to release more personal works in the future.
It’s time to bring it all together. Nothing is more rewarding for me than making great work for clients with meaningful missions.

Inspired by the natural, rocky, volcanic, and poetic environment of New Zealand, Sandstone is a work dedicated to film music and short trailers. The short format of the tracks is thus thought for all audiovisual projects requiring a strong impact in a limited time.
