William Basinski
"there was obviously the sound itself, so hypnotic that it was immediately understood as a classic of ambient music"
Pitchfork

William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years in NYC and most recently, California. Employing obsolete technology and analogue tape loops, his haunting and melancholy soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. His epic 4-disc masterwork, The Disintegration Loops received international critical acclaim and was chosen as one of the top 50 albums of 2004 by Pitchfork Media. The Temporary Residence deluxe LP box-set reissue from 2012 was awarded best re-issue of the year and a score of 10 on Pitchfork. Installations and films made in collaboration with artist-filmmaker, James Elaine have been presented in festivals and museums internationally, and his concerts are presented to sold out crowds around the world.

Basinski was chosen by Music Director, Antony Hegarty to create music for the Robert Wilson opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic which had its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival in July 2011 and toured Europe in 2012 and North America in 2013. Orchestral transcriptions of The Disintegration Loops by Maxim Moston have been performed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth Hall and La Batie Festival in Geneva, Switzerland, Dark Mofo Festival in Hobart Tasmania and most recently Pitchfork Midwinter Festival with the Chicago Philharmonic. Basinski is currently touring the world in support of his latest work, "On Time Out of Time" which was released on March 8th, 2019 on Temporary Residence/2062/USA.

KEVIN RICHARD MARTIN

Kevin Richard Martin is the man behind The Bug, King Midas Sound, Techno Animal, Zonal and a host of other uncompromisingly heavy projects he has instigated since the 90s. Having released the intensely personal Sirens, his first record under his own name, on Lawrence English's Room40 imprint in June 2019, Kevin has used the recent enforced period of isolation to incredibly prolific creative ends, establishing a new digital label, Intercrannial Recordings, through which to release a five-volume suite of albums entitled Frequencies For Leaving Earth. Each volume was composed, mixed and produced during the lockdown period, as Kevin spent this surreal, intense time rebuilding his studio in his new home of Brussels, retreating into alternate sonic realities that veer between deep chasms of drone, discombobulated ambient, neo-classical motifs and oceanic swells of noise. Each release features artwork by celebrated visual artist Pedro Maia, and sold-out tape runs of the first two volumes have followed courtesy of Boomkat.
