Note Productions are delighted to present the launch of Relative Phase, the new work from 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
