VISIONARY SEASCAPES VINYL
Most of the music on the LP was originally composed and created by Jem Finer for Kötting’s feature film Swandown. Visionary Seascapes was recorded, reworked and remixed at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London in the winter of 2012-13 to mark the ten year anniversary since the release of their last collaboration; Visionary Landscapes.
"Cut-ups and smidgeons abound. Jem Finer and Andrew Kötting have assembled yet another veritable bricolage featuring the gorgeous voice of Macgillivray. As well as original music from the film Swandown, acoustic magic weaves its way through these beautifully constructed soundscapes. Elegaic, beguiling and haunting. The compositions have a sublime and soaring beauty that might never sink to the bottom of the ocean.”
Swandown: For four weeks throughout the months of September and October 2011 Andrew Kötting and Iain Sinclair pedalled a plastic swan over 160 miles from the seaside in Hastings to Hackney in East London. They drank 84 litres of water, 2 bottles of whisky, 4 bottles of wine and 24 cans of special brew. They got through 8 pairs of sunglasses, a handmade suit, a pair of walking boots and a camper van. Andrew Kötting wore the same clothes throughout. Iain Sinclair was changed regularly.
