Lydian would make his debut as a film composer with the Indian Malayalam language fantasy film Barroz: Guardian of D’Gama’s Treasure, directed by Mohanlal, starring himself in the lead.
Lydian is born to Varshan Satish, a Tamil music director, and Jhansi as their second child. At the age of two, he started performing on the drums and at eight he taught himself to play the piano.
He is a student of Augustine Paul, the Music Director of the century-old Madras Musical Association Choir.
Lydian spent 4 years studying at KM Music Conservatory, a higher education institution founded in 2008 by the AR Rahman Foundation.
The Chennai youngster, who spent four years at maestro A.R. Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory and is now tutored by his father Varshan Satish, stunned the judges at the contest by playing 280 beats per minute. He then increased his speed to 325 beats per minute.
“I listen to music on YouTube and spend time going through music software. Along with my sister, I experiment a lot and we compose our own music.”Lydian
The prodigy can play blindfolded, handle two pianos simultaneously, apart from being adept at playing the guitar and mridangam, his mother Jhansi said with legitimate pride.
Lydian says he wants to compose music for Hollywood. “I want to work for an animation film,” he said, adding that he also wants to play the piano on the moon at some point.
In September 2019, it was announced that Lydian would make his debut as a film composer with the Indian Malayalam language fantasy film Barroz: Guardian of D’Gama’s Treasure, directed by Mohanlal, starring himself in the lead.
He played the role of Guddu in the film Atkan Chatkan.
Oscar winner A R Rahman went to Lydian’s house in Saligramam (Chennai) and appreciated him. Lydian has spent four-years training on a full-scholarship at AR Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory under Surojeet Chatterji in the Russian Piano School.
