Album Notes
Scott Twynholm is a Scottish composer and musician.

He works in film, dance, theatre and art.

He was a member of Looper with Stuart David of Belle and Sebastian and went on to form the electro-pop band Hoboken with filmmaker Jonathan Carr. He also releases solo material under the name Metrovavan.

Released as a limited edition vinyl on De-Fence Records, Alasdair Gray: A Life In Progress picked up airplay on BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 music crossing the boundaries between contemporary classical and indie-pop.

"The record is as warm, entertaining and enlightening as Gray himself. Twynholm has created not only a lovely album, but a colourful and affectionate portrait of this truly singular artist's life." Nicola Meighan, The List
