Michael Begg has previously appeared at TUSK 2016 alongside Clodagh Simonds, Colin Potter and others in Fovea Hex. Since then he’s also been developing his Black Glass Ensemble and expanding it to include new members such as Ben Ponton of Zoviet France.
Just before the virus took hold, the Ensemble performed live at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall in a line-up comprising Begg, Ponton and members of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. A recording of that performance, titled Arise from The Twilight, is set to be the Ensemble’s first release on November 11 so, to celebrate it’s imminence, we present this online listening party at TUSK Virtual. Michael and also hopefully Ben will also be in the chatroom as the album plays and happy to discuss the recording and the project.
