All we really know about Michael Beggs — besides his brilliant trumpet improvisations both inside and outside of Yggdrasil IN The Skunk Ape Moment — is that he grew up somewhere near Boulder, Colorado. Sometimes he takes his trumpet apart while he's playing it.

You can hear him on Evan Strauss' Bear Country concert, this live video of Yggdrasil IN The Skunk Ape Moment performing "Glacial Lake Hitchcock", and his own AFTER THE EFFECT, plus a few other places if you dig around the www some.
