William Basinski playing A SHADOW IN TIME - FOR DAVID ROBERT JONES LIVE (US)
William Basinski rose to fame in 2004 with ‘The Disintegration Loops’, a masterpiece in which, making use of his training as a classical musician, he manages to perfectly capture the resounding experimentation that his music has expressed since the early 90’s. A true artist, a lover of the old-fashioned, who mixes melancholy and fierceness in equal parts with a fascination for the temporary nature of life and the mysteries of time.
Basinski comes to MIRA to present an exclusive live performance of his latest album ‘A Shadow in Time · For David Robert Jones’ (Temporary Residence Ltd, 2016). In this work of art, he honors David Bowie in two ways. The first is a musical ode to the legend which incorporates a vintage Voyetra 8M synthesizer, with the second being a series of loops made with tapes that add finer details in the shape of riffs and wind instruments that transport you to the universe of the pop genius.
