Description

World-renowned for decades as one of the liveliest and most impressionistic composers of experimental music, William Basinski achieved his influence primarily through his Tape Loops, especially through the historic series "The Disintegration Loops", in which distorted, orchestral tape samples deeply infiltrate the listener's psyche through meditative repetition.

On his new album "A Shadow In Time" Basinski goes deeper than ever before in the melancholy, lonely eulogy for David Bowie, aptly titled "For David Robert Jones". In contrast, the title track "A Shadow In Time" is a subtle, heavenly expansion of melody and drone.

The result is one of the most truly transcendental pieces of music he has ever recorded on tape, or at least escaped from tape.
