William Basinski - The Disintegration Loops (2002-2003)


Melancholic compositions, dreamy loops, hazy drones, broken sounds, ambient moans... These all describe William Basinksi's beautiful Disintegration Loop series. The entire set lasts about 4 hours so don't expect a complete listening in just one sitting. Additionally, this is the kind of music that can be revisited over and over again because I promise you, it will sound a bit different on every single listen. You can hear the "tape-to-digital-transfer" process as each track slowly begins to dissipate and expire by the 3/4 mark.

IV is broken. It's only 8mb, hope this gets fixed cause I'd love to hear all of it!
