2003 Patrick O'Hearn (CD)
Reviewed by Bert Strolenberg, Echoes
As a soundsmith and composer of melodic elegance and grace, Patrick O'Hearn stands tall as a true original. This new release on his own label is a perfect balance of lush textures, melodic understatement and emotional space. The world needs more of this beauty.

2005 Patrick O'Hearn (CD)
Patrick has just released a fine new CD, which in some ways is a bit of a departure from his more rhythmic signature sound. The pieces move between subtle and more minimal analog synth studies along with deep textural soundscapes. It has an ambient (in the true sense of the word) and drifting sense of space, atmosphere and mood. While a few dreamy rhythmic pieces are well-placed towards the middle, the ephemeral zones and textural themematic expanses are what especially speak out and keep calling you back into the slow time of O'Hearn's beautiful alluring world.

|So Flows the Current|
2001 Patrick O'Hearn 80462-81003-2 (CD)
This Year 2000 release is a high point in Patrick's solo career. It is on this release where his gift at creating pieces for an ensemble comes into focus, with a more acoustic sound -- while still wrapped in warm, lush, melancholic sound fields. He is joined by long-time collaborators Peter Maunu (guitar) and David Torn (guitar) as well as cellist Pat Johnson and Robin Tolleson on drums, cymbals, and shakers. This release has the best elements of the classic O'Hearn sound during his Private Music days, yet something occurs with this ensemble that shades the music with contrast and an even more mahogany-like color and mood. O'Hearn's noble melodic and textural themes have often been emulated but never matched.
