Swimmer One: promoting dance and positive mental health

2015 SMHAFF trailer from SMHAFF on Vimeo.

You wait ages for a festival trailer with music by Swimmer One, then two come along at once. Today saw the launch of the 2015 Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, and the trailer is soundtracked by music from our 2010 album Dead Orchestras.

Meanwhile, the touring dance festival Pioneers of Performance opened in Greenock today. The tour is being promoted with a trailer featuring music from our 2007 album The Regional Variations.

We have a vested interest in both these events – Laura created Pioneers of Performance in her capacity as director of the Work Room, and Andrew is currently working as arts lead for the Mental Health Foundation in Scotland. But we reckon we would want to support them anyway – also, they seem like appropriate settings for sad music you can dance to.
