Michael Begg – Scenes from the Carefree Life of a Roman Lady: 1
Available exclusively as a digital download from the Omnempathy Bandcamp
State your own price (£2.20 minimum contribution)
This is the first in an occasional series of live and rehearsal improvisations by Michael Begg (Human Greed, Fovea Hex, Fragile Pitches)
The single track download comprises a 20 minute set of drones, bowed instruments and treated autoharp. It should, Begg says, “ideally be accompanied with moonlight and red wine”

The first review of the recent 2CD release, Fragile Pitches, by Colin Potter and Michael Begg has just appeared online at Musique Machine.
“Circular, tidal movements slowly change into intense, ringing carillon chords setting off the defensive trills and squawks of unknown creatures at night. Shimmering curtains of constantly moving timbres play the same note over avalanches that ultimately reveal a solemn waltz on the wind before it disappears along with all other reverberations into the cathedral’s interior, swallowing like a black hole.”
The full review, whcich was written by Russell Cuzner, can be read at this location:
