Free download of Michael Begg live set

On May 22nd 2013, Michael Begg opened for Chrysta Bell at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms. A recording was captured from the mixer and although raw and subject to drop outs and phazing, the document still reveals an interesting insight into the direction being pursued by Begg.
The set is now available on “pay what you like” terms – free, basically – from the omnempathy Bandcamp. Enjoy.

Fragile Pitches clip

Michael Begg and Colin Potter perform Fragile Pitches at Edinburgh’s St Giles Cathedral, Dec 30th 2009. The event took place in a dimly lit cathedral and so the quality is consequently very poor. Nonetheless, the event is worth documenting. Footage captured by Elise Chandler.

Other clips can be found on the omnempathy youtube channel…
