In Focus: William Basinski

Los Angeles, 28.07.23

US composer Basinski is most well known for his work "The Disintegration Tapes", a series of fractured minimalist compositions, the recording of which coincided with the September 11th, 2001 attacks in New York. The tapes' sound – drifting abstraction at once chillingly distant and claustrophobically intimate – are a constant emotional motif of his wider work, which spans musique concrete, ambient, and minimalist tape plundering.
