Genre: Contemporary Classical/Electronic
Andy Wilkinson (real name Andrew) has been playing piano and guitar for a while but has recently taken the plunge and shifted into producing, and what a shift he has made! Andy seeks to create new and interesting music, piano and various electronic-ee-ness are his tools. Andy is from Chelmsford, UK and is currently a University of Brighton student. Andy is new to this whole producing thing, but he is doing well and is creating something new and unique I enjoy listening to. On his bandcamp, Andy has two releases, Signals and Discord.
I decided to listen to Andy Wilkinson’s latest track on his soundcloud titled “Simulation: MRTX.” This particular track is very full and synthy, and features an interesting configuration of drum sampling. The piano is slightly repetitive, which reminds me of that whole minimalist movement which is something I’m into. Before you know it a guitar kicks in, and that completely shakes things up. Andy really does bend genres in such a way I cannot define. There is a good contrast from the beginning to the end of a song that creates a nice contrast, and showing some complex themes, but still very enjoyable and approachable as a listener with not an as developed ear.
