Aengus Hackett - Guitar & Electronics

All tracks composed, performed, and produced by Aengus Hackett
Tracks 3 and 6 are improvisations performed with an analogue mixer and guitar pedals

The musical moments which happen in the heat of the moment during improvisation have always been the most exciting to me. This series of pieces is my effort to capture that in the writing process. All of the main thematic material was composed through free improvisation.

Track 1 is dedicated to my father Richard Hackett
