Boomkat product review for:

william basinski - Variations For Piano & Tape

Back in stock. Another incredible addition to William Basinski's engrossing catalogue, "Variations For Tape & Piano" is a melancholly excursion through forgotten sounds and degraded memories. Listening to this music its easy to appreciate why so many musician's these days cite basinski as an influence, most recently Boards of Canada in numerous interviews and features. As ever, though, it's left to Basinski himself to explain his work best : "Comprised of one 44 minute track, Variation #9 'Pantelleria,' this archival release is one of my all-time favorites of the piano and tape variations from the early eighties. Using a lilting piano melody on a small loop, the requisite magic happened in the recording process when this particular loop would randomly slip along the play head revealing an extraordinary counterpoint (in reverse) on the other side of the tape. To me, this piece evokes a lazy Arcandian summer idyll, and will always remind me of an idyllic artist's residency in 2003 on the beautiful Italian island of Pantelleria." --William Basinski, June 2006. Stunning.
