'sea / boat / water' is the first single that’s flourished from a collaboration between two neo-classical composers; ÜUCE (USA) and Arttu Silvast (FIN).
The project started to come together after the two musicians found each other through shared digital spaces and started exchanging musical ideas online. It turned out that they both had a similar taste in music, sounds, and textures.
I grew up spending my summers in the sand on the east coast of the USA. Naturally while there, I had life-giving experiences, fell in love with the ocean, and fell in love with the women who ended up becoming my wife. As the years moved on and I finally got to enjoy the sea with my son, a melody broke onto the shore in front of us. After sharing the concept with Arttu, he thoughtfully observed the notes to find the meaning for me… not to mention expand profoundly on it. - ÜUCE
I’m originally from a very small seaside town in Southern Finland and the sea has always made me feel at home and offered an endless source of inspiration. ‘sea / boat / water’ came together as ÜUCE sent me one of his piano ideas that I started to build on. Turned out that we have a very similar taste in aesthetics and music but also, we are both fascinated by the sea. - Arttu Silvast
