‘How To Disappear’ is a 9 track album by Paddy Mulcahy. Written during the period when the 26 year-old composer was living in Montréal, taking inspiration from different spaces around the French-Canadian city and the pianist’s introduction to modular synthesizers.
This stunning piece of work intertwine’s solo piano and synthesizer compositions with jungle drumbeats and digital choirs – creating a moving, emotional and cinematic soundscape that immediately draws you into Paddy’s colorful story of his leaving Ireland, living in Montreal and his return to his native Limerick City.
The variety throughout the album is intended to reflect a somewhat bizarre 18-month journey; including all of the up’s and down’s, good and bad & everything in between.
As Mulcahy’s sound develops on from previous releases such as ‘The Words She Said’ and ‘From Water’ – we are reminded of how carefully he contrasts the piano against the synthesizer to create a unique and beguiling sonic universe.
‘How To Disappear’ is available on vinyl and digital release via Phases Records. Order your physical copies HERE.
