It’s all Relative for Ordnance Survey

Wednesday, 26th June, 2019 4:31pm

Irish producer Neil O‘Connor is set to launch his new album in Cork next month. The electronic composer is releasing ‘Relative Phase’, a collaborative work made with a host of Irish and international artists.

Launching at The Roundy on Friday 19 July, ‘Relative Phase’ was recorded over the space of a year at his studio at the National Concert Hall.

It is the latest project from O’Connor, who has been producing electronic music for the past 21 years under a number of guises, most notably as Somadrone, where he has been compared to the likes of Brian Eno and Ryuichi Sakamoto. He also plays with post-rock legends Redneck Manifesto.

‘Relative Phase’ sees O’Connor develop a heightened sense of control and restraint in his work, attempting to ‘map’ the worlds of new music, jazz and electro-acoustic music. Among O’Connor’s collaborators on the album are Sean McErlaine, Linda Buckley, Kate Ellis and John McEntire (Tortoise).

Support will come from Ava, a producer-composer based in Melbourne whose debut EP 'Anaphora' is due to be released in 2019, and Mark Waldron-Hyden, who composes music combining field recordings, sampling, acoustic instruments, and tape manipulation.

Ordnance Survey launches ‘Relative Phase’ on Friday 19 July at Plugd upstairs in The Roundy. Tickets are available from uticket.ie and Plugd Records.
