Andrew is a regular performer on the trumpet and piano, utilising electronic effects to extend the sound of both in live and studio settings.
He has performed at venues such as The Vortex, Iklectic and the Union Chapel, as well as at festivals such as the Cheltenham and London Jazz Festivals, and the Love Supreme Festival.
The vLookup Trio
Andy plays in the vLookup Trio alongside long-time collaborators Rich Perks and Tom Atherton. Together they explore pieces which combine pre-composed material with improvisation in styles that range from avant-garde noise to funk-rock, whilst also pushing the sonic possibilities of a trio instrumentation by incorporating effects and live electronics.
“Wow…Sasha Ilyukevich & the Highly Skilled Migrants…They’re Something Else…and what a name!“Max Reinhardt, Late Junction, BBC Radio 3
Andy is a recent addition to the Highly Skilled Migrants, the brainchild of London-based Belarusian Troubadour Sasha Ilyukevich. As with vLookup, Andy uses live electronics to augment the sound of the trumpet, matching the fiery and distorted sound-world of Sasha’s brilliantly-conceived music. Andy has also made brass ensemble arrangements of Sasha’s music, which can be heard here.
