William Basinski
A Shadow In Time

William Basinski pulls another couple of tape loops out of his voluminous archives, this time containing sounds from the rare Voyetra 8 synthesiser. A Shadow In Time is devised as a tribute to ‘David Robert Jones’ (aka David Bowie), and is a typically gorgeous, slowly-expanding work of Basinski-drone. Available on CD or vinyl, with exclusive, slightly different mixes on each format.

William Basinski
Silent Night

William Basinski with another one of those long-ass bits of ambient niceness that he does so well here. Across the course of an hour Silent Night undulates slowly between hissing drones and heavenly synth choirs. Basinski says that he thinks of the hissing sound as crickets, which sounds about right. Arvo Pärt, The Caretaker, yada yada yada.

William Basinski

‘Cascade’ is the first new album release in over two years from classically trained musician and composer William Basinski. New York based Basinski has been working in experimental media for over thirty years, utilising ancient technologies to create haunting, melancholic soundscapes through tape loop compositions of long forgotten instruments. ‘Cascade’ is an oscillating undercurrent built out of a solitary, broken piano loop which is deconstructed through a process of feedback loops for the bonus track ‘The Deluge’.
