Into the twenty-first century, as well as regularly playing with UK and Irish improvisers, he has also performed with Wadada Leo Smith, Greg Tate’s Burnt Sugar Arkestra, guitarists Han-earl Park and Reeves Gabrels, the Poet and Detroit legend John Sinclair, and New York based drummer Harris Eisenstadt. He has recently collaborated with drummer G Calvin Weston and has been featured on a version of John Zorn’s gamepiece Rugby which will be released by Tzadik. MacGowan..

“is now a significant figure on the Emanem axis of British improvisers, a formidable technician and a profoundly intuitive music maker, with the ability to deliver exactly the right sound, or very often the right sonic texture, at the psychological moment.” (Brian Morton, Point of Departure) MacGowan’s.. “style has the free-form panache of a Wadada Leo Smith or Joe McPhee, but his experience of other musics is never too far from the surface. Some of his gestures seem to derive from earlier forms of jazz, and there are moments of harmonic directness that you could put chord symbols under. But it has all been thoughtfully moulded into a highly convincing and distinctive language.” Windmap is a series of improvisations recorded at the musician's home - a bravura performance in which MacGowan runs the instrument through a an amazing sequence of techniques exploring every aspect of the possibilities of sound production - from virtuosic upper register flurries with mute, extreme lower register rumbles and breathtaking leaps through passages of extended technique and vocalisations.
