“You can find rhythm everywhere. Pulse and cycles and nature and moon phases. It has a rhythm.” – Ronan Skillen

Ronan is a talented musician, who finds his inspiration, his balance and his connection, through spending time in nature. It’s where he re-tunes his body, mind and soul.

“Music isn’t simply a sound produced with instruments – it’s everywhere, permeating our environment, and it shares a common thread with nature, especially rhythm. Rhythm is what fascinates me most”
