Altocirrus is an Irish musical project formed in 2010 by the husband-wife duo Sean and Clare McCarthy. Sean had composed tracks of his own in 1996 before combining his talents with Clare, whom he met in 1998. In 2012 Ross Ackerman of New Zealand was added. Cyberspace facilitates their collaboration, but that is a common thing today.
Synth and guitar are fused to create unique long-form interpretations of life experiences. Altocirrus’s influences are numerous, but influence is not imitation. And there is also the vivid immediacy of urban-industrial life and the natural world beyond the engines and wires, where the eye detects the flight of birds and the ear the sound of the wind on water.
If the listener thinks of J.G. Ballard when hearing the music of Altocirrus, that person can be accounted a connoisseur.
