William Basinski – Disintegration Loops IV – Track DLP 1.3 (2003)

After the apparent flippancy of Dire Straits, I attempt to recover my tattered credibility with this remarkable record. (Gotta say, no apologies needed for Romeo and Juliet ….)

An accidental recording. Basinski editing his disintegrating recordings on the morning of 9/11 is overtaken by events.

Personally, I struggle to erase the images of that day. Too troubling to think of the last moments on American Airlines 11 or United Airlines Flight 175. The footage of The Falling Man is too much to bear. This music just helps somehow. A bit.

Basinski’s results are remarkable, Brian Eno, John Cage, Philip Glass-esque minamilist perfection. A wonderful record. Details here.
