Solo Project

Aengus Hackett’s music for solo guitar and electronics draws from his experience as a seasoned performer. His compositions are soothing and uplifting, a captivating blend of jazz, folk, African, film music and more. Making use of acoustic and electric guitars, as well as an array of effects pedals, Aengus creates lush ambient textures to bring the audience on a journey inward.

As well as this, Aengus is passionate about experimentation and expanding traditional notions of how to play the guitar. In doing this, he manages to create music that is fresh and unconventional, yet never alienates his audience.

On 24th November 2020, Aengus released a new EP entitled ‘Shimmer’.
For the series of six pieces, Aengus explored free improvisation as a compositional approach.
Created with support from the Arts Council’s COVID-19 Crisis Response Award.
