    Seamus O’Muineachain, Psychonavigation 3/5

    Co Mayo minimalist Seamus O’Muineachain has been picking upadmirers with a musical style that veers between stealth, serenity and assurance. After a couple of toe-dipping EPs he finally throws caution to the howling west of Ireland wind with his debut album. The result is a tremulous if tranquil success. There are times when O’Muineachain’s piano-playing isn’t anywhere close to the subtleties of likely influences Harold Budd, Dustin O’Halloran and Hans-Joachim Roedelius. But there is a sense that it won’t take long for O’Muineachain to reach such levels. In the meantime, there is much to luxuriate in, notably the soft swells and lulls of Away with the Fairies, Any Port in a Storm and By Her Window. TONY CLAYTON-LEA

    Seamus O’Muineachain is a 24 year old composer from the West of Ireland. He has been writing short pieces for the piano ever since his teenage years but only began recording and releasing his compositions when he found himself with free studio time. Since putting out his first EP he has received a considerable amount of Irish national radio play on the popular RTE show ‘An Taobh Tuathail’ as well as on 2FM and 2XM.

    In July of 2011 he was listed by The Irish Times as one of the top ten Galway based musicians. He has been compared to Brian Eno by Hot Press magazine and has performed at the renowned Feile Iorrias International Folk Arts Festival as well as sharing the stage with the seminal folk group Yawning Chasm and the Cork based noise group Mersk.

    On this the artists self titled debut album he creates a unique piano soundtrack. You can imagine many of these pieces up on the big screen alongside the most heart wrenching scenes in a love story. Open your heart and let the music wash over you.
