Andrew Wasylyk’s ‘Inner Estuary’ Is An Expression Of Calm

Aural topography that explores one of Scotland's hidden gems...

Andrew Wasylyk grew up in Dundee, a city that has undergone huge changes in its recent history.

Formerly a giant of Scottish industry, Dundee has forged a fresh path through life sciences, further education, and new technology.

Along the way, the city's architecture has changed dramatically. Walking around Dundee, it's possible to note the decades pass, a collision of styles that presents progress through contrast.

Andrew Wasylyk uses this as inspiration on his album 'Themes For Buildings And Spaces', a document of aural topography that explores one of Scotland's hidden gems.

Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Inner Estuary', a slow-moving piece that filters brass textures through the composer's work.

Andrew tells Clash: "Others too sit spellbound silent crossing the twenty five tons of steel built into the river bed. Gazes are swept out to the North Sea, ushered in to the Sidlaws from spire to chimney. On a calm morning the Tay rests still as ice, a Harbour Seal basks in the absence of a current. Childlike, ingesting each dying low tide ripple before the dull carriage-clack pulls us over the inner estuary and in to the Kingdom of Fife.”

Tune in now.

'Inner Estuary' features on the new vinyl edition of 'Themes For Buildings And Spaces', due out on November 10th – pre-order LINK.
