Per Lichtman


Per Lichtman has had a lifelong relationship with music from his earliest time in Sweden, where his mother played notes to him by name in the womb, to his recent collaborations with Grammy winning vocalist Hila Plitmann. Within hours of being born, Per was exposed to Vangelis' score to Chariots of Fire and his infatuation with synthesizers began. That infatuation continued as he blended genres as diverse as world music, avante garde piano compositions, orchestral writing and lyric driven work with electronica in his compositions.

Per Lichtman has had a lifelong relationship with music from his earliest time in Sweden, where his mother played notes to him by name in the womb, to his recent collaborations with Grammy winning vocalist Hila Plitmann. Within hours of being born, Per was exposed to Vangelis' score to Chariots of Fire and his infatuation with synthesizers began. That infatuation continued as he blended genres as diverse as world music, avante garde piano compositions, orchestral writing and lyric driven work with electronica in his compositions. In 2000 and 2001, Per started to go public with his music on sites like Javamusic.com (where he reached 3 on the daily charts) and MP3.com (where he placed in top 50 for avante-garde classical) and garnered glowing praise in his first review from GodsOfMusic.com (recently refashioned into Consensus Music Reviews). Per's success continued into the academic realm as he won a Reflections award for his piece "I Hold in my Hands the Keys to the Other Side", a piece that also garnered him one of only 7 composer spots in the California State Summer School for the Arts - Inner Spark program with the chance to briefly study with John Adams.

That same year, he was accepted to the music program at Whitman College. While at Whitman College, he spent his summers studying with his good friend Rob Woo. Woo helped him develop as a composer and audio engineer and said "I cannot recommend Per Lichtman highly enough as an artist... He takes in and absorbs what can be learned from his peers and history, but the trajectory of his work is his own." It was through Woo that Per Lichtman later came to work with Katlin Rivers, Nimrod Nol and Joanna St. Claire.

Since graduating from Whitman College with a degree in Music Theory and Composition, he has been composing and mixing his debut album "Liquid" for BBMC and mixing Joanna St. Claire's album "Stream" for Dreamtown Music, both slated for release in 2008. In the summer of 2008 he began collaborating with Hila Plitmann as lead producer on her first original solo album in Los Angeles, California.. His music has once again garnered chart attention, including two Top 20 hits on the the overall electronica charts on SoundClick.com with "Are You Gonna Win? - feat. Katlin Rivers" and "Not Here - feat.

Nimrod Nol", as well as four Top 5 and three #1 hits in the electronica sub-genre charts, including tribal and techno. He is also currently assistant editor at the online publication, WusikSoundMagazine.com. In addition to his own work, Per has helped to test and consulted on the development of music software for both independent developers and established companies, been a constant presence on various online composition and music technology forums working to help young composers to get past technical difficulties to find their voice and exposing them to new sounds with collections of his own templates and presets. Per Lichtman's music can be heard on Last FM, MySpace Music and SoundClick.com Read more on Last.fm.
