Mixing Media

Sylvi MacCormac introduced herself as a songwriter but her succeeding releases have incorporated soundscapes (of varying lengths and of interest). On Sept 6 & 7 MacCormac will combine both at the Roundhouse during the Kickstart 5 Festival Of Disability Arts. On the same bill is the estimable Crista Couture. MacCormac is at the VAMS Studio working on an album, The Feather.
