WILLIAM BASINKSI [USA]
Saturday 27 April 2024 | Gazarte Main Stage
Carving a very particular path over the past 30 years, William Basinski insists on recording mysterious frequencies at the precipitous edges of music’s boundaries, even making it seem simple and effortless. Based in New York City for most of his career, he has used his musical training not to reproduce the classics, but to redefine the essence of sound and test the conscious boundaries of audiences and critics around the world as few others have.
Analog technology was and remains his passion, and by intricately weaving melancholic soundscapes and multiple layers of recordings, Basinksi explores the (anyway chaotic) universe of what we call ambient music, giving image to sounds and sound to images. Working for decades with visual artists, museum curators and orchestral musicians, he sets art installations imprinted in music, creating new dimensions.
His timeless masterpiece ‘The Disintegration Loops’ has been invested in museum exhibitions and orchestral adaptations around the world and he continues to be creative without compromising on his uncompromising approach, which is clearly reflected in his latest work ‘On Time Out Of Time’ for which he is still touring the world.
As part of this latest creative campaign, William Basinski will also visit Athens for a unique performance at the Gazarte Main Stage on Saturday 27 April, at one of those occasions when the boundaries of art and the process of its reception are tested, both for the artist and the audience.
Doors open: 21:00
