Conor Walsh wrote his heart in minimalist piano compositions. Described in the press as ‘meticulously crafted’ and ‘genuinely spellbinding’, his work came from a practice of non-directedness, guiding us only to transcendence from our quotidian existence. It pulses with the influences that went into its creation – the windings of the river Moy, the human traffic of a small Mayo town, the migratory movements of swallows, a creaking 200-year-old hotel, and the maternal melodies of his childhood.

In this musical reverie, director Keith Walsh (When All is Ruin Once Again), celebrates the work Conor left behind when he died tragically of a heart attack in 2016, aged 36, just when his music was beginning to flow out into the world.
