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 ...view item »

The Disintegration Loops IV

The fourth and final part of William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops releases, a series of recordings famed for the sheer evocative beauty they wrenched from decades-old tape loops. The tape was old enough that it started to literally fall apart as it was played, suggesting the melancholy of passing time and the i...view item »

‘Cascade’ is the first new album release in over two years from classically trained musician and composer William Basinski.

William Basinski

To commemorate its 10-year anniversary William Basinski's Melancholia gets the remastered, virgin vinyl treatment on this, its first ever wax edition.

Vivian & Ondine

I was amazed when I saw what William Basinski looked like. Him being adopted by the more highbrow mob I expected him to be well dapper in some fancy suits or even some comfy jumpers... I didn't expect him to look as LA Metal as he does. I like it though.... It's good when folks confound expectations.... and with a new Basinski CD comes great expect...view item »

It's amazing to think that William Basinski's '92982' was recorded in 1982 as it's the sort of thing that could come out on Kranky these days. Actually we're reminded of stuff like Tim Hecker, The Caretaker etc. This music features ultra soothing ambience and floating melodies. So much so that Phil just declared "I feel like I'm floating on a fu...view item »

Here’s William Basinski’s first album of new solo material in four years, ‘Nocturnes’. You probably already have a good idea of whether or not you like Basinski, who has over the years perfected his slowly-decaying style of patient nostalgic tape loops which disintegrate and decay ...view item »

William Basinski
Variations For Piano & Tape

William Basinski continues to pull tape material from his archive and put old sounds to good use. Variations For Piano & Tape appears to be just that, a melodic piano piece interfacing with the tape heads, slipping and stumbling and cracking and popping. Melancholy beauty. Out on Basinski&rsquo...view item »

William Basinski
El Camino Real

More compelling loop-based ambient action from premier loopster William Basinski. El Camino Real is, I am led to believe, composed from tape loops that have been lanquishing unheard for many years. Basinski’s processes resurrect them, but through a thick-yet-delicate layer of audio wizardry. What ...view item »
