William Basinski is a classically trained musician and
composer who has been working in experimental media
for over 25 years in NYC. His haunting and melancholy
soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life
resounding with the reverberations of memory and the
mystery of time. His epic 4-disc masterwork, The
Disintegration Loops received international critical
acclaim and was chosen as one of the top 50 albums of
2004 by Pitchfork Media. Art Forum selected The River,
his transcendental 2-disc shortwave music experiment
on Raster-Noton.de, Germany as one of the top ten albums
of 2003. His concerts and installations and films made in collaboration
with artist-filmmaker, James Elaine have been
presented internationally, most recently at The Venice Biennale of Music, Venice, Italy, Happy New Ears Festival, Belgium, FOCUS ONE Festival, Poland, Filosophia Festival, Carpi, Italy, Cite de la Musique, Paris, among others. Basinski's latest albums,
"92982" and "Vivian & Ondine" will be released in Spring 2009
on 2062/USA and distributed internationally. His entire catalog is available for digital download through I-tunes, Amazon.con, and numerous legitimate digital retailers worldwide.
