about

"To the exorcism of the ghosts and escaping from cities"

Hatchling is a slow-burning electroacoustic piece, integrating dense atmospheric collage of field recordings and concrete sound source with highly textural drones and warm subtle harmonics. A very personal and breathtaking piece, both in the heritage of Francisco López and Charlemagne Palestine.

"Moving and morphing into various genres, musique concrete, field recordings, minimalist music, this is one solid sound experience. Very nice work!"
Vital Weekly

"Phil Begg weaves sounds derived from acoustic instruments and field recordings into a rather enchanting warp and weft."
Just Outside


"...Sous le couvert de l’étrange pseudo Hapsburg Braganza se cache l’Anglais de Newcastle Phil Begg. Adepte des collages sonores, notre homme nous offre une seule pièce de quarante minutes, particulièrement dense et intense. Peuplés de field recordings qui rappellent de toute évidence la musique concrète de Francisco Lopez, surtout lors de la première partie, les paysages sonores de Hatchling passent d’une pluie cinématique à des grincements hitchcockiens. Inquiétantes, les atmosphères évoluent de façon presque impalpable, mais réelle, vers une vision de plus en plus liquide, où la beauté sonore passe de flux en reflux, avant l’averse. Petit à petit, un drone organique surgit du mur d’eau et le souvenir des Nocturnal Emissions et de Charlemagne Palestine refait surface, pour ne plus nous quitter. Et on en redemande."
