Conor Walsh was a minimalist piano and electro acoustic composer from Swinford, Co. Mayo, Ireland. He began composing as a teenager, writing short piano pieces on an old piano that sits in the reception room of a hundred year old hotel.
Inspired by the wild Mayo landscapes in the West of Ireland, Conor’s work is dramatically stark yet soothing, melancholic yet hopeful. His compositions draw from a variety of genre’s that span Minimalist to IDM, Chopin to Tool and have been likened to the music of Hauschka, Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm and Philip Glass.
