The Disintegration Loops by William Basinski, released 02 September 2014 1. DLP . 2. For those who missed out on the now-legendary, highly sought-after (and highly sold-out) box sets, we are now offering the four volumes of The Disintegration Loops suite as separate, individually packaged albums. The audio was remastered in 2012 from the original master tapes, and the artwork is packaged in deluxe old-style tip-on gatefold jackets. Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Purchasable with gift card.

The Disintegration Loops ‎(CD, Album, RP). 2062. The loops themselves are quite beautiful and very much follows the tradition of ambient music a la Brian Eno's Discreet Music and Ambient 1/Music for Airports. Interestingly enough, not only it follows it in terms of theory and sound choice, but also it utilizes a simple set up where the insignator is no longer in control of the output. All Basinski did was push play and record and the machinery did its magic. The process is interestingly very organic. Of course this is due to capturing the disintegration of organic material containing musical information. This is part of its charm

The Disintegration Loops II ‎(2xFile, FLAC, Album, RE, RM). Temporary Residence Limited. Of all my Ambient artists & tracks I possess, DLP3 by Basinski is one of THE most moving pieces of what i'd call 'Contemporary Classical Music' I ever owned. Referred to me by a friend of mine, I was immediately immersed in it's Melancholic soundscapes. Then, having read that this was made amongst those horrific & turbulent times of 9/11 only added to the emotions & power of these pieces

In essence, Basinski is improvising using nothing so much as the passage of time as his instrument, and the result is the most amazing piece of process music I've ever heard, an encompassing soundworld as lulling as it is apocalyptic. A piece may begin bold, a striking, slow-motion slur of ecstatic drone, and in the first minute, you will notice no change. There is another, eerier chapter to the story of the Disintegration Loops- that Basinski was listening to the playbacks of his transfers as the attacks of September 11th unfolded, and that they became a sort of soundtrack to the horror that he and his friends witnessed from his rooftop in New York that day, a poignant theme for the cataclysmic.

As William Basinski began his attempts to convert old reel-to-reel tape recordings into a digital format, and as he reconstructed his opus, The Disintegration Loops I, the then forty-something musician unconsciously began to document the death of music nearly half his age. Later, he even put it bluntly: "the music was dying. But even though he professes his uncontrollable love for these specific compositions in the liner notes of this album, he decided to sit down and allow his simple, elegiac melodies fade into nothingness. Much of the time you can hear the ferrite on the magnetic.

When this album begins, it begins with a loop that is beautiful and haunting. It repeats over and over again, like Basinski compositions are known to do. But after awhile, and even the most discerning ears have a hard time figuring out exactly when it occurred, the loop has changed. It seems like its struggling to get through the motions and the sounds that came easy in the beginning of the song. Before long, the loop isn't even recognizable, it's a collapsed and skipping mess that sounds like.

Please please please repress this masterpiece!!!!!!!! Stunning ageless music, a must buy.

Umor
what was the price when it first came? ? ?

Brakora
Just looked through my emails to see when I first bought it. I paid $300 including shipping, so £236 in total. I have to say, I am very happy with that now I can see what it's going for. Wouldn't ever sell it!

just one girl
Tell me about it can't believe I slept on this gutted!

Uranneavo
At one point there were a bunch on sale for $150 or so. Still kicking myself for sleeping on that.

Just a minor, first-world problem comment: I recently accessed the included CDs to continue ripping them, after all these years. I had only played the vinyl until now. Fudge, the dreaded, primitive design of tight-fitting, semi-circle pouches to hold the CDs; all of my discs have light scratches. Pressing plant worker and/or rough postal transit to blameThere's gotta be a better design for manufacturers to include CDs in LP packages, no? How 'bout first slipping the discs in those white, fuzzy, lense-friendly/scratchless CD sleeves that sometimes come in some of the Japanese market CDs, before inserting them into the gatefold's pouches? Surely, that would be better than just shoving them naked into cardboard eye-slits. Seriously, fudge!

1262 people want this Bill! Me too...repress please, PLEASE! P-L-E-A-S-E

I have only listened to The Disintegration Loops once. once is enough. this the most hateful idea ever committed to record; a metaphor for growing old. there is no hand to grab you, no rock to cling onto as you sink. yes, it is evocative - but there is no transcendence. leave it to the masochists to rate this 5/5.

Nawenadet
I read the previous comments on the fade outs and ins of the vinyl, I'm just wondering if it harms the listening experience in any way? I am quite used to leaving the CDs or MP3s going continuously and I worry that having to flip or change the record so often will interrupt the experience too much. Any thoughts?

WinDImmortaL
OP specifically mentions flipping / changing the record. Did you miss that part?

Rainbearer
Instead of being worried about the fade in and out should you not be worried about having to physically lift the needle and flip the record over? Would that not harm the listening experience?

Wanenai
this item is still available on the temporary residence website for the original selling price of $225. don't fall prey to these ridiculous re-sellers.

Nirad
Do you know if Temporary Residence charge for international shipping or currency conversion?

Hiylchis
The tracks on the inyl fade-out and fade-in, there are no abrupt ends or starts
