For the past year Swimmer One and Biphonic Records have been working on an ambitious multimedia project with theatre director Cora Bissett, playwright David Greig, and The Arches in Glasgow. We’re thrilled to announce that the results will be premiered at the Arches from 26-29 June this year.
Whatever Gets You Through The Night, as it’s now called, will feature exclusive new words and music by Swimmer One, Withered Hand, David Greig, Errors, Wounded Knee, Annie Griffin, Meursault, RM Hubbert, Rachel Sermanni, Alan Spence, Ricky Ross, Conquering Animal Sound, Alan Bissett, Emma Pollock, Kirstin Innes, Isabel Wright, Bigg Taj, Stef Smith, Eugene Kelly, Douglas Maxwell, Talkingmakesnosense, and David Ireland.
As well as the live show, there will be an album and book, a film by our long-time collaborator Daniel Warren (working with with Kim Beveridge, who is doing the live visuals for the show), and a collection of photography.
For regular updates on the project as it comes together, see the Facebook page.
Whatever Gets You Through The Night has been made possible by Vital Spark funding from Creative Scotland.
