Vanitas CD Omnempathy OMCD11 "VANITAS is another semi-conscious descent into the liminal territories between contemporary composition and electronic erosion. I am still consumed by landscape, by memory, by *that* sense of longing. And I still cannot stop staring at the moon." [M Begg] - "There are few more nocturnal musicians than Michael Begg. I do not exaggerate when I place him in a high firmament alongside ARVO PRT and COIL. Beggs is a music to make the twilight last, and in that liminal area he sets his table.." [Fear Drop] 2019 €13.00
Moonlight and Sentiment CD Klanggalerie GG 412CD "This music does not create a song for our ears. It is a 'state', such as moonlight poured over the fields...". - extremely subtle and floating, lulling melancholia ambience, like slowly drifting clouds in the sky,.. MICHAEL BEGGs (HUMAN GREED, FOVEA HEX, BLACK GLASS ENSEMBLE) dark romantic explorations are almost not tangible, pouring out of special mental states... 2022 €15.00
