After years of composing for film and TV, Sheridan is exploring a different side to his artistry with his new music, drawn out of a need to create a body of work which represents something more personal, something which is solely his own. The result is ‘Seven Days’ - a blissful eight track collection which draws on a wide range of musical experiences, from orchestral and electronic to folk-influenced world music. Its music layered with the string swells of Vaughan Williams, splashes of colour taken from Debussy's manuscripts, Stravinsky's bold ambition and the purity of Mozart. All balanced with Sheridan’s love of the artificial waves and pulses of electronic music. “I want my music to have a duality so it can mean different things to different people. I don’t want to impose too strong a single feeling. I am more interested in colours, textures and layers in music over melodies than more traditional aspects of composing.” IN-IS on BDI Music Ltd


Five years ago Sheridan began work on the ambitious TV series Wonders of the Solar System with Brian Cox. By using guitars, drums, electronic and orchestra sounds he sound-tracked what was to become one of the most successful television shows of recent years. It may have been Brian Cox's personal journey and enthusiasm but this project also unlocked something, a musical voice which went well beyond the screen to somewhere else. He wondered if he could write something for himself, so took to the cocoon of his home studio and with his instrument of choice, the piano, began working on what would become IN-IS.


PORTS are a four piece band from Northern Ireland. They consist of Steven McCool (Bass and Vocals), Mark O'Doherty (Drums), Ryan Griffiths (Guitar) and Conor Mason (Piano).
