Ordnance Survey

Ampere

[Scintilla Recordings]

With its unplaceable string instruments and chattering piano laced through warmly undulating synthscapes, Ampere the second outing under the Ordnance Survey moniker for low-key electronic impresario, Neil O’Connor – seems at its most potent when playfully percolating in the cross section of classical and rock instrumentation with synthesised tones and rhythms, even more so than its predecessor.

Further shades are added to the Ordnance Survey project with the coterie of traditionally informed collaborators – including Donal Lunny and Cormac Mac Diarmada of Lankum – making their presence known in subtle and satisfying ways across Ampere.
