about

‘Tidal Patterns’ is the stunning debut studio album by Kinbrae, released on the acclaimed modern classical label 1631 Recordings.

Inspired by the remote Isle of Coll in Scotland, the record portrays the year that Andy Truscott spent working on the island in 2014/15. ‘Tidal Patterns’ is an album that explores remoteness, seclusion and the feelings that these can evoke. It confronts the apprehension and doubt often experienced when starting afresh and escaping comfort zones as well as embracing new ways of life in an unfamiliar environment.

The album makes use of the unique sounds that can be heard on the island, gathered through field recordings depicting the wildlife, culture and ambience of the remote region. These field recordings have been complimented by rich orchestral scores composed by Andy and his twin brother Mike. From a starting point of piano and brass, the brothers have augmented their arrangements to include a range of instruments including strings, synthesizers, kalimbas and various other instruments.
