Does your street have its own sound? Beyond the cars and the voices and the perpetual white noise of modern life, do the local spaces that you call home – the parks and the paths, the great trees and the graveyards – have their own distinct musical personalities? Do they offer up melodies that come alive when one foot goes down in front of the other, or when the sun blinks out over the horizon?
Andrew Wasylyk – the visionary Scottish composer and producer – has quietly set about soundtracking his locale to dazzling effect. His recent triptych of albums (Themes for Build-ings and Spaces, The Paralian and Fugitive Light and Themes of Consolation) collectively ex-plored the East coast of Scotland, while 2021’s masterful Balgay Hill: Morning in Magnolia took inspiration from a Dundee park that provided a peaceful respite for many against the creeping panic of the pandemic.
Join Andrew and his eight-piece ensemble this December for a series of epic sonic journeys with shows across Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool. Tickets on sale 10am 2nd September.
Presented by Music-Net; a partnership between producer and promoter Root Music and Inner City Music, owners and operators of iconic Manchester venue Band on the Wall, funded by Arts Council England.
