Paddy Mulcahy Embraces the Starkness of Isolation with ‘Unti Piano’

Irish Producer and Composer Paddy Mulcahy embraces the starkness of isolation with the haunting new single ‘Unti Piano’.

The atmospheric, yet bittersweet single is a heart-felt juxtaposition of piano and field recordings from a pre – lockdown Limerick City.

The composition was written as very personal ode to Paddy’s father Brian who sadly passed away last year.

‘Unti Piano’ is Paddy’s first release this year not featured on his 2019 sophomore LP ‘How To Disappear’ and appears courtesy of Phases Records.

Paddy Discusses ‘Unti Piano’;

“This nostalgic piano piece accompanied by field recordings focuses on the ideas of memory & location. 

Written 5 months after my father’s death, the piano track is located in an eery landscape, complimented by locational field recordings from Limerick City around the time of his passing. 

Something I had wanted to work on for a while was capturing the character of a place in my recordings. 

All takes from around my hometown of Limerick City featuring Thomas Street, the Corbally Baths & the Milk Market.  

One such memory being my father bringing me to the Milk Market every saturday morning as a child to buy some garlic cheese. 

These trips would often be followed by a visit to the Corbally Baths to feed swans & ducks.

The title, however, came about by mistake. Originally the file was named ‘Untitled’ – I had put in “Piano” in the middle leaving it as ‘Untipianotled’.

I eventually learned that “Unti Piano” means “For The Piano” in Filipino.”

Riding on the back of the success of his much lauded sophomore LP ‘How To Disappear’ Irish Producer and Composer Paddy Mulcahy has recently joined the roster at Paradigm Talent Agency.

2019 saw the release of ‘How To Disappear’, a nine track masterclass in Ambient/Electronic music highlighting Mulcahy’s diversity as an artist with styles ranging from jungle beats to classical dirge’s. 

The album was an instant hit with the music media receiving praise from Cerys Matthews (BBC 6 Music) RTE 2FM (Album Of The Week) a glowing 4 star review from The Irish Times, two performances at Other Voices and huge support with radio and blogs nationally and internationally.

Paddy’s works can also be found on many of Spotify’s editorial playlists. 

He has provided music for international commercial adverts for companies like Deliveroo, MADE & Belstaff and has had his music featured at Cannes Film Festival, London Surf Film Festival, Newport Beach Festival, London Fashion Week and dozens of other events and venues.
