With Pádraig Rynne (concertina, electronic sound designer), Cillian King (guitars, vocals), Eoin Walsh (electric bass), Davie Ryan (drums), Cormac McCarthy (piano, keyboards)
Pivoting on the wizardry of concertina player and electronic sound designer Pádraig Rynne, Notify seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with forward-thinking innovation.
From backgrounds as varied as jazz, traditional Irish, electronic, pop and funk, the musicians deliver an evocative repertoire of original melody compositions and songs, produced with sensitive electronic overlays and inventive arrangements.
“An intriguing musical crossroad (…) where Irish traditional, jazz and electronica don’t so much fuse as fizz.” (**** The Irish Times)
“Notify’s fearless approach to experimentation has produced yet another beautiful record. In Concept effortlessly couples jazz and traditional music genres. The possibilities offered by such musicianship and passion for music are endless." (BBC Radio)
>> N.B. The open-air concert by Notify will take place in the courtyard of CCI on Sunday 19 March at 12.30pm (and not in the Jardin du Luxembourg as initially advertised).
>> On 17 and 18 March, Padraig Rynne and his trio will play in Juvisy-sur-Orge and La Norville (91) as part of the festival D’ici et d’ailleurs-Musiques du monde (16-21 March), organised by Les Bords de Scènes. Details: www.lesbordsdescenes.fr
