Andrew Wasylyk, who formerly performed and exhibited at NEoN digital arts festival, has been nominated for the SAY Award.
The award is given annually to the most outstanding album produced by a Scottish artist, with Wasylyk’s album ‘The Paralian’ being nominated for the longlist. Fans are encouraged to take part in a public vote, which is open now until midnight on Wednesday 14 August, and help select a winner.
Wasylyk says; “I’m grateful to NEoN for giving me the opportunity to work on the Themes for Buildings and Spaces commission which was a valuable stepping stone towards creating this latest album. It’s an honour and a privilege to be nominated alongside so many wonderful Scottish albums.”
The Themes for Buildings and Spaces commission was part of NEoN 2016 and invited the listener to explore the city of Dundee through sound. Partly inspired by that year’s festival theme of architecture, the piece provided a soundtrack to six special sites around the city.
He’s also part of musical outfit Art of the Memory Palace, who played NEoN’s closing party in 2018.
