Details on stockists & tour dates over the next while!


FIXITY is an experimental music group led by Composer/Drummer Dan Walsh. The tunes are explored in collective improvisation with a fluid cast of musicians from various fields of intrigue.

In June 2016 Fixity released the first in a series of self-produced and self-titled albums on the KantCope cassette label and since has recorded consistently with Tenor Saxophonist Emil Nerstrand (Lumi/Brigaden/Greasy Margaret) including a Double LP on Penske Recordings in December 2016 entitled “The Things In The Room”, also featuring Guitarist Nils Andersson (Ljom/Ava) and Fredrik Persson (Sista Bossen/The Good Morning Spider/Leo Kall/Cassus) which was recorded in a single evening at the historic Tambourine Studios in Malmo, Sweden.

Since the release of “The Things In The Room” Fixity has released 2 Live EPs recorded in Cork and Malmö and has performed in Sweden and throughout Ireland with a cast of unique improvisers such as Carolyn Goodwin (Woodwinds), Philip Christie (Synthesizer), Kevin Terry (Guitar/Clarinet), Neil Ó Loclainn (Bass/Flute) and Declan O’Shea (Bass), continuing to expand on questions of the impossibility of stillness and repetition with an increasing network of collaborators and their welcome voices.

2019 will see the release of Fixity’s second LP on Penske Recordings, entitled “No Man Can Tell”. This new work features an expanded group of Irish and International musicians and is due for release early in 2019.

The Altered Hours unveil video for ‘Over The Void’



Over The Void is the second single from The Altered Hours ‘On My Tongue’ EP. This song is a flash of urgency spun with wiry guitars and shotgun drum rolls. Trashy and fast-paced with a sweet submerged melody that builds with proximity and zeal with repeated questioning ‘What did you say to me?’.

Frustration palpable in the face of mystery. A conversation started but not continued. The blind faith of the pilgrim who keeps seeking but does not know why, convinced nonetheless and set alight by the unknowable.
The accompanying video for Over The Void was directed by Helio Leon, cinematography by Izabela Szczutkowska & Helio Leon & edited by Afghaniscan (Robert Watson).


‘On My Tongue’ EP is out on Art For Blind/Penske Recordings.

Available on limited edition pink vinyl plus standard black vinyl editions on Friday 9th March.

On My Tongue | Open Wide | Over The Void | Hey No Way
