William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years. Employing obsolete technology and analogue tape loops, his haunting and melancholy soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. A highlight being The Disintegration Loops, a project based on Basinski’s attempts to salvage earlier recordings made on magnetic tape. As the tapes were too far gone, Basinski decided to let them deteriorate further and further into oblivion, paradoxically creating a timeless masterwork in the process. Basinski is currently touring the world with his eulogy to David Bowie, "A Shadow in Time (for David Robert Jones)”.
Note: the concert will be broadcasted live by Swedish National Radio.
