Composed by Conor Walsh
Conor Walsh was a minimalist composer from Swinford, Co. Mayo. Conor drew inspiration largely from the wild Mayo landscapes in the West of Ireland. As a keen fisherman along the River Moy in Mayo and Lough Corrib in Galway, Conor would take note of his surroundings introducing these dramatic scenes into his deeply expressive melodies. It was at home on a 100 year old piano that Conor began his early compositions. These compositions drew from a variety of genres that span Minimalist to IDM, Chopin to Tool and have been likened to the music of Hauschka, Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm and Philip Glass.
