Ordnance Survey:

Composer Neil O ‘Connor has been producing electronic music for the past 21 years under a number of guises (most notably Somadrone), where he has been compared to the likes of Brian Eno and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Relative Phase sees O’Connor develop a heightened sense of control and restraint in his work. Spatial data is all around us; it helps us shape a more functional world. To map a space, gives us better ordnance.

The album attempts to ‘map’ the worlds of new music, jazz and electro-acoustic music and features a survey of collaborations from his contemporaries such as Sean Mc Erlaine, Linda Buckley, Kate Ellis and John McEntire (Tortoise).

Recorded over the space of a year at his studio at the National Concert Hall, Relative Phase see O’Connor develop orchestrated electronic soundscapes that borders neo-classical thinking, in a similar vein to Nils Frahm and other composers attempting to extend electronic music’s levels of emotion and personality

"The giants of 20th century minimal composition -- Philip Glass and Steve Reich -- are obvious influences here, but O'Connor is no mere copyist" - Irish Independent

"Detachment that we find in Steve Reich or Brian Eno circa Music for Airports" - Wire Magazine



Ava aka Sarah McCauley is a producer-composer based in Melbourne. Her debut EP Anaphora, forthcoming in 2019, is a project in expiration and mysticism delivered through digitally rendered instrumentation and fractured rhythms.

Neil chats to the folks at Red Bull here:

Anois, Os Ard: Irish Underground Music Reviewed By Eoin Murray


"the resulting album is a glimmering selection of electroacoustic goodness veering comfortably from cinematic new age and ambience into more heady territory, with John McEntire’s racing percussion on ‘Goya’ giving its gravelly drones and melodic chimes an exhilarating urgency" - Eoin Murray (The Quietus)
