Visionary composer Andrew Wasylyk will be performing in Ilkley as part of his UK tour alongside artist/designer Tommy Perman on 19th September.

Wasylyk’s compositions have been nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award and he received the high praise of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Gideon Coe’s Album of the Year. On his last UK tour, he played venues such as the Manchester Hallé and the Liverpool Philharmonic accompanied by a symphony orchestra. He has collaborated with former National Poet for Scotland, Liz Lochhead, and written soundtracks for Radio 4.

Tommy Perman’s work as a musician and DJ has taken him across the world, with numerous record releases under his own name and with experimental group/arts collective FOUND, alongside visual works at the Sydney Opera House and National Museum of Scotland.

With their first collaborative album as a duo expected later in the year on Clay Pipe Music, the spirit of the project is channelled on their new single ‘Communal Imagination’. Wasylyk’s trademark searching piano chords float above Perman’s distinct rhythms and elsewhere, saxophones and choral vocals climb above fluttering synths in a unifying chorus.

This event has been organised by Ilkley collective Village Pavilion and made possible with support from a Bradford Council Cultural Grant, tickets start at only £5. Expect an intimate, transcendental audio-visual performance by two artists at the height of their creativity.

Andrew Wasylyk and Tommy Perman will perform at Ilkley Moor Vaults on Thursday 19th September 2024.

Tickets are available via Village Pavilion’s Eventbrite, follow them on Instagram or Facebook to hear about upcoming events.
