The Nation // Live – A National Galleries of Scotland project featuring Daniel Warren and Wounded Knee

TNL-625

If you know much about Swimmer One, you’ll have heard of our long-time friend and collaborator Daniel Warren, who has designed all Swimmer One (and Seafieldroad) artwork, as well as directing numerous films to accompany our songs – from We Just Make Music For Ourselves to Ghosts in the Hotel. He also worked with us on Whatever Gets You Through The Night.

Daniel’s latest project is film forming part of a major new exhibition and commission by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, called The Nation / Live. The exhibition is accompanied by a hardback book, a DVD of the film and a beautiful 10-inch vinyl record of songs and sounds curated by Wounded Knee (aka singer/song archivist/experimentalist Drew Wright) – featuring some recording and mixing work by Hamish Brown of Swimmer One and contributions from Polish choir Davno, beatboxer Bigg Taj and members of Sparrow and the Workshop. Find out more (and buy it if you like).
