The culmination of a two-week residency, composer Michael Begg produces and performs a new work, Sonámbulo: un bebedero para pájaros compuesto por dientes para la novia del viento, of experimental electronic music that takes English-born Mexican artist, Leonora Carrington’s paintings as its theme. Using surrealist methods to discover the sound worlds of Carrington’s strange, worrying and often disturbing paintings, expect a challenging composition that delves into the unconscious mind and evokes detailed dream-like imagery.
Michael is an award-winning composer, sound artist and musician based in East Lothian, Scotland. His music is located in the place where formal composition and electronic erosion meet; a liminal space coloured by longing and discomfort.
