Also a filmmaker, poet and academic, he has been exhibiting and publishing internationally since the 1970s, haunting zones mostly unregulated by institutions or the art market. His work balances an elementally-inspired gravitas against a very black sense of humour.' (Dan Fox, Frieze, Issue 96) MacGillivray MacGillivray is a singer 'of exquisite depth andà‚ range, from breathless operatic swoon,à‚ lonely as the ocean, to tortured tragicà‚ heroine via some wonderful Gaelicà‚ incantations'. http://www.macgillivray.org.uk/page_2135829.html Working with electric autoharp, church harmonium, wine glass and piano, MacGillivray creates luminous and stark vocal soundscapes. Two albums, Wolf and Radiophonic Subluna have been performed as support for The Fall, Arlo Guthrie and featured on BBC Radio 3, The Verb. www.macgillivray.org.uk
