~ WINNER Scottish New Music Awards 2018 ~
- Michael Begg’s TITAN was awarded the Holiday Inn Theatreland Award for New Electroacoustic / Sound Art work at the 2018 Scottish New Music Awards.High over Clydebank, in the wheelhouse at the top of the Titan Crane, Michael Begg presents a site-specific installation that transforms the iconic structure into both musical inspiration and musical instrument. The crane symbolises past and future, both a monument to an industrial age of unprecedented feats of engineering and exploration and, today, signals a prospective epoch of ambition, imagination and outgoingness. In Begg’s piece, the crane and its environment become the basis for a work for electronics, cables, strings and breaths, playing on the material of the structure and the voice of the wind that sings around the elevated wheelhouse.
