William Basinski

13.11.2021

William Basinski is an experimental composer, sound sculptor, and video artist based in Los Angeles, California. He is a relentless experimentalist obsessed with reel-to-reel tape decks, splicing tape and spindling it. His musical signature is evidenced, interestingly enough, by deeply emotional sounds filled with multiple tones, drones, textures, and shades that are as hauntingly beautiful as they are somber. While he's best-recognized for his career-defining 2002 album 'The Disintegration Loops' , Basinski recorded and released new music prolifically, expanding on his beautiful and emotionally resonant sounds with albums like 2020's mournful Lamentations.
