Basinski has occupied a sort of niche for decades, as a sort of minimalist performer of low-tech synthetic sound art. There are intuitive links to Rolf Julius, though also many obvious differences; links also to Fennesz; you could say he's like a cross between Fennesz and Terry Riley. If you've discovered a fondness for those composer/musicians, you'll probably like this. It's music at a kind of limit. In this case, it's two discs of one loop that coils in on itself, generating an apparently endless variety of incremental change and accidental surprise. Basinski's like the auditory equivalent of Robert Irwin, back when Irwin was still making discrete objects; describing it makes it sound like a science project, but listening to the recording , the sheer beauty of it drops you to your knees.
