Bio: William Basinski is an American avant-garde composer based in New York City. He is also a clarinetist, saxophonist, sound artist, and video artist. Basinski is best known for his four-volume album The Disintegration Loops, constructed from rapidly decaying twenty-year-old tapes of his earlier music.
PitStop's Thoughts: William Basinski is one of those rare gifts to the world. His art is one of more texture than ego, more discovery than posturing. His newest release "Lamentations" is exactly how its title sounds: an epic journey of the sonic soul. William explores and defies the tones that we are accustomed to hearing. "Lamentations" shines in layers and depth, all the while featuring a dynamic palette of sounds. This is where noise, drone and traditionally organized music meet.
