Guy Begbie’s sound works are created from manipulated primary resource field recordings. These include aural interventions and the ambient sounds of specific environments.
There is an open rationale behind the works, treating the manipulation and construction of the collective sounds as an aural collage, using methodologies influenced by visual composition and concerns regarding: juxtaposition, counterpoint, texture and the translation of mark making into sound.
