New Music: ÜUCE & Arttu Silvast – sea / boat / water

I’ve covered a couple of track from American neoclassical composer ÜUCE, real name Scott West, before. His latest project sees him team up with Finnish multi-instrumentalist Arttu Silvast and it’s called sea / boat / water.

By Graeme Smith

As you’d expect from its title, the piece draws on maritime imagery for its inspiration. The result is something that’s as expansive as the ocean with melodies that seem to come and go like the tide. Though there is an undercurrent of sadness, the piece overall strikes a hopeful and nostalgic tone.

Sea / boat / water is the pair’s first collaboration to be released but there are more to come. I, for one, can’t wait to hear them. Check out the piece below.
