Ronan O Snodaigh Myles O'Riley The Beautiful Road
Prepare to embark on a soulful and captivating musical journey with Ronan O Snodaigh and Myles O'Riley's second album, "The Beautiful Road." This remarkable collaboration blends folk, traditional, and ambient music into a mesmerizing crossover experience that will leave you spellbound.
As the heartbeat of the album, Ronan O Snodaigh shares a unique recording process that took place during four stormy days in the scenic West Cork. Inspired by the roaring waves of the Atlantic Ocean, he adorned himself with an extraordinary ensemble of rings, earrings, and keyrings, which he had collected from various cities around the world. These pieces were sewn into leg shakers and belts, creating a musical tapestry of sounds that adds a distinctive and soulful layer to the album.
During the recording, Ronan used his entire body to play the rhythm of a heartbeat, reminiscent of the first beat heard in the womb. Coupled with the glorious high-frequency patterns that the wind, sea, and waves can create, the result is a mesmerizing auditory experience that transports listeners to the ocean's edge.
Myles O'Riley, equally entranced by Ronan's performance, decided to immortalize this unique moment on film. The captivating video was filmed at D-Light Studios in Dublin, where Ronan danced with his remarkable suit of bells. Adorned in blue clothing to symbolize the sea's color and with his face painted white to mirror the white tips of breaking waves, the video captures the essence of the ocean's beauty and power.
"The Beautiful Road" is an album that embraces the profound connection between nature and music. It invites listeners to immerse themselves in the raw emotions and sensory experiences that Ronan and Myles have artfully crafted. Each track is a glimpse into a world where music and the elements coalesce in harmonious unity.
Experience the enchantment of "The Beautiful Road" and lose yourself in the mesmerizing fusion of sounds and emotions.
