William Basinski

An avant-garde composer William Basinski is most famous for his work “The Disintegration Loops.” An original composition created in 2002-2003 from the decaying loops of twenty years’ worth of his older works on tape. Originally from Houston, Basinski studied jazz saxophone and composition at North Texas State University in the late 1970s before embracing the new-jack minimalism and process-based abstract composition of fellow composers Brian Eno and Steve Reich.

William Basinski performed on October 23rd at the San Antonio Museum of Art.
