William Basinski - The Disintegration Loops III [2003]

William Basinski's Disintegration Loops are truly unique and beautiful. Circa 2001, Basinski set out to take old loops he made in the early 80's and convert them to digital. When he put the reels on the rod and began recording, brittle pieces of metal began chipping off the loops. The music was literally dying in front of him. I can't imagine what it would feel like to be Basinski, watching a masterpiece made 20 years earlier getting destroyed.
