'The Garden of Brokenness' is great. Anyone else heard of him? Kind of like Eno.
i was thinking about him earlier. i have his disintergration loops, which is amazing. does he just do loop based stuff?
I like the wall of noise that drifts in and out, it's really interesting.
I'll have a look for that too.
The Disintegration Loops for ages and ages and ages but it's sooooo expensive. $80+postage is insane.
4 CDs of album length isn't too bad is it? It is cheaper than buying each one in Rough Trade, I tellya.
Doesn't go well on mix-cds. I wouldn't normally take music by such an artist out of album context, but then this mix is really quite good. Still, it's somewhat selfish of him to leave only 50 minutes or so for other artists.
I love sleep music.
amazing, love the DLP's and Melancholia. I listen to it on my laptop in the british library, GREAT music to work to.
If you like him and haven't already then check out Tim Hecker...very nice
I've got most of his stuff from soulseek (sorry Bill)
Pocketmouse, I have attempted to put Basinski on mix CDs - one of the DL tracks works particularly well, the one that is about 12 minutes long. It's a nice closer, beautifully repetitive, wonderfully decomposing -well that is the point somewhat, obviously.
I adore Basinski, I have loads of his CDs - and loads of them are on Bleep.com now, to download a lot cheaper than the import CDs I had to buy two years ago.
He is up and coming in popularity. I think his associations with Antony has helped a lot.
Most of his music is adorable, but the Disintegration Loops is the one, a major fucking work of art, really. The mytholgy is fab also - the fact he was recording the original music he put to tape from the early 1980's and it was dying and breaking away from the tapes as he put them onto digital form, as he and his friends watched the Twin Towers burn. Maybe it never happened but can you imagine being at that party!!???
