Rhian Sheehan’s music has gained a substantial following here in New Zealand and overseas, reaching out to a diverse audience. ‘Standing in Silence’, his first full-length release in four years, represents a new musical bearing for Rhian Sheehan. His previous albums, 2001's 'Paradigm Shift' (regarded as a landmark in New Zealand electronica) and 2004's 'Tiny Blue Biosphere' (both released by LOOP Recordings), were acclaimed for their visionary blend of cerebral beats with sci-fi storylines and cosmic sensibilities.
Sheehan’s latest album ‘Standing in Silence’ pushes into a new direction of organic, ambient and abstract sound. The sounds of cascading glockenspiels, plucked piano strings, wine glasses, playgrounds and airports are the substance of 'Standing in Silence'.
Sheehan's work has featured on variety of international CD compilations, most notably the multi-platinum selling Cafe’ del Mar series. His music has also appeared regularly on BBC television programming, including Top Gear, and has been used for a variety of TV commercials and movie trailers and short films worldwide.
