Michael Begg

Second studio album from experimental composer Michael Begg, who scooped the New Music Scotland Award for his 2017 debut album Titan. The artist’s development of customised instruments has informed the creation of his sophomore effort Vanitas and his time in Mexico on an arts council-funded residency.

TITAN: A Crane Is A Bridge

For TITAN: A Crane is a Bridge, sound artist Michael Begg enlists the gigantic, titular Titan crane of Clydebank in Scotland both as a performance space and as an instrument. In the windy, beefy lattice frames and oily joints of the towering device, Begg teases out all sorts of metallic resonances and ironclad drones. Over these, he layers his own gentle instrumental additions - to great effect. At times, it resembles ‘dark ambient’ music. Only actually good. A Sonica Festival 2017 commission, the work is available on CD through Omnempathy in a glossy Japanese digipak.

Michael Begg | Mélenchon Brève
One True Vine

The massive creaks and drones of TITAN: A Crane is a Bridge have barely finished reverberating, but Michael Begg’s back with another full-length for Omnempathy, this time in collaboration with someone or something named Mélenchon Brevé. On One True Vine, The gradual and contemplative style of Bregg’s (sometimes dark-)ambient music meets devotional themes, resulting in a lonesome, rather spiritually-charged melancholy.

A Moon That Lights Itself

A Moon That Lights Itself is a commissioned work by Michael Begg. At the request of the Scottish National Galleries Begg composed these pieces focussed around 19th century painter Charles François Daubigny, and as with Daubigny’s paintings these light to dark wandering pieces that mix modern classical with sound art installation reveal more intricacies with every listen.
