William Basinski
William Basinski
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. The Temporary Residence deluxe LP box-set reissue from 2012 was awarded best re-issue of the year and a score of 10 on Pitchfork.

His concerts and installations and films made in collaboration with artist-filmmaker, James Elaine have been presented internationally, and his concerts are presented to sold out crowds around the world.

Most recently, Basinski was chosen by Music Director, Antony Hegarty to create music for the new Robert Wilson opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic which had its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival in July 2011 and toured Europe in 2012 and North America in 2013.

Orchestral transcriptions of The Disintegration Loops by Maxim Moston have been performed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth Hall and will tour Europe with various orchestras in 2013.

Basinski is currently touring the world in support of latest work, "A Shadow in Time (for David Robert Jones)" which was released January 2017 on 2062/USA (CD) and Temporary Residence Ltd./USA (LP).
