Details

Most of the music on the CD 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.”  - Joe Haulaway

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. www.swandown.info

They met all sorts en route, from the Hoi Polloi to the Hoity Toity, from the very old to the very young, with the pedallo acting as a catalyst and magnet. Sometimes they were accompanied by guest pedallers; Alan Moore, Stwart Lee, Dudley Sutton, Dr Mark Lythgoe, Jem Finer, Nick James, Dinos Chapman, Kate Duchene, Oona Grimes, Lara Feigel, Benji Miing, Xiaolu Guo, Will Sinclair, Ben Rivers and Marcia Farquhar.

Jem Finer is an artist and musician, who works in a diverse range of fields, including music, film, performance and photography.

Andrew Kötting was born in the woods, became a lumberjack and is now an artist and film maker.
