William Basinski

‘I try to stay in the moment – and the moment is eternal.’ William Basinski’s words perfectly capture the melancholy timelessness of his music – most famously on The Disintegration Loops, a stunning, slow-burning collection of degraded tape loops released in the wake of 9/11 that serves, even today, as a lullaby for the apocalypse. Six years after he collaborated with Antony on the music for The Life and Death of Marina Abramović at MIF11,and two years after his last sell-out show in the city, the musician and sound artist returned to Manchester with his beautiful new release A Shadow in Time, which featured a singular and personal tribute to David Bowie. A rare UK show by a true American original.
