Minimalist/ambient piano composer from the west of Ireland. I've been writing minimalist/ambient pieces for piano since I was a teenager. Most of my earlier music was written on an eighty year old 'Goetze' upright piano (featured in the video 'The Front') which sits in the lobby of an old hotel. I now also use a Roland RD-700GX.
My compositions draw upon elements of the traditional, classical,experimental, rock,idm and minimalist genre's and is inspired mostly by life in the West of Ireland. Major musical influences include Aphex Twin, Chopin and Tool.
My live performances are now accompanied by original Cello and Violin from Mark Hennessey. . Part of the live show is original video from David Lenehan synced to the music.
I played at HWCH 2010, HWCH 2011, Temple House festival 2010, The Flat Lakes festival 2011 and Electric Picnic 2011.
There are some music video's on my youtube channel (www.youtube.com/conorwalshpiano). 'The Front' by David Lenehan was shortlisted in the music video category at the Cork fringe film festival 2011.
'The Front' was also selected for the BBC Music Video Festival 2011.
I was comissioned to compose music to accompany a camera obscura bus journey project at the Fleadh Ceoil in Cavan 2011. The music was featured on the BBC radio documentary on the event by Colm Sands.
My music was used in the feature length documentary 'Apples of the Golan' (released March 2012).Here is a link to the trailer. - http://vimeo.com/36979514
