Brian Catling walks out of step from other artists. 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.

MacGillivray is a singer of extraordinary 'sadness and bleakness' (Fiona Talkington Late Junction, BBC Radio 3). 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.
