about

Welcome to the world of Rhian Sheehan, where acoustic melancholy meets synthesised soundscapes in an electronic mind meld, taking the listener on a rich and rewarding musical journey.

Organic instruments are married to a computer-based bed of lush layered sounds. Intangible emotion is summoned from synthesised sounds. Sampled soundbites and snippets of dialogue are contextually redefined. No more than an assembly of simple sonic elements, no less than an ultimately unique & personal musical vision - this is the Paradigm Shift.

Rhian’s landmark debut, Paradigm Shift, offers an all-encompassing overview of his broad musical vision. The opening sheen of the album’s intro is overlayed with radio coverage of the fall to Earth of the Russian Mir space station over the Pacific Ocean in March 2001, before the album kicks into life with a gasp and the crisp beats of synth-driven second track “She Walks Into Mine”.

The following track “Waiting” is an exciting collaborative effort - highlighted by the sublime vocals of Lotus and guest musicians Tehi (Fat Freddy’s Drop) and Darren Mathiassen (TrinityRoots).

Elsewhere on the album, further friends and family are enlisted for assistance including a special performance by Rhian’s two month old daughter, Niva.
