The Disintegration Loops (2002) / William Basinski

Ambient: The Disintegration Loops (2002) / William Basinski

On The Disintegration Loops, William Basinski presents us listeners to the literal decay of sound. Shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, while transferring outdated new age samples from analogue to digital format, tape loops were forgotten about and left to disintegrate over time. The resulting accident, as well as the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, inspired the creation of this piece of process music. The Disintegration Loops is a powerfully provocative, and harrowing work of art.
