As the Spring of discontent took hold on 2020, Scottish composer and producer Andrew Wasylyk sought shelter in the familiar. Low-light morning walks in Dundee’s 19th century Balgay Park acted as sanctuary and solace to events happening in the world outside. Wasylyk’s acclaimed new album, 'Balgay Hill: Morning In Magnolia' presents itself as a collection of recreational meditations embed with blue and golden melodies that land in a territory akin to experimentalists such as Robert Wyatt and Virginia Astley. A transcendental journey through ambient, library and jazz and an invite to untold stories and images that take flight in the listener’s mind.
The ten compositions that make up Balgay Hill: Morning In Magnolia present themselves as hymns to early morning light, the optimism at the start of the day, and the simple joy that can be found close to home exploring an inner-city park. As with last year's Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation and Scottish Album Of The Year Award shortlisted The Paralian (2019), trumpet and flugelhorn are handled by fellow Tayside musician Rachel Simpson, who's delivery blends muted swells and punctuated patterns.
Andrew Wasylyk - Gardyne Theatre, Dundee, Friday 4th February 2022.
For this unique hometown show at Gardyne Theatre Andrew will be joined on stage by an eight piece ensemble. The performance will also include songs taken from his SAY Award nominated albums, ‘Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation’ and ‘The Paralian’, as well as live accompanying visuals from artist Tommy Perman.
