about

TITAN - WINNER of the New Music Scotland 2018 Award for New Electroacoustic / Sound Art Work.

This original commission, for Cryptic Glasgow, premiered at the Sonica '17 Festival in Glasgow.

REVIEWS
A magnificently graceful and beautiful sonic document
Norman Records

Begg’s extraordinary electronic sound installation... with huge, swelling harmonies, occasionally building to moments of ecstatic beauty... its slow-burn, cumulative effect is one of uncompromising power and inevitable decay, both a celebration of enduring strength and a memorial to its demise
The Scotsman

Begg’s installation is perhaps the standout at Glasgow’s Sonica… The wheelhouse becomes the humming dark heart of the crane as Begg’s electronic enfolding and eroding of the raw sonic materials sets a rich and taut piece in perpetual motion… turning the iconic structure into a gently haunted compound of wind and noise.
The Wire

Delicate and sparse... A great album
Vital Weekly

 With Michael Begg’s instrumentation, the Titan Crane feels like a living creature. One that tells us an important story.. if only we listen.
Ambient Blog

Michael Begg makes architecture sing like no one before him.
Stephen Fruitman, Igloo
