022. William Basinski : A Shadow In Time

Temporary Residence, 2017

David Bowie died over a year ago but is still finding ways to inspire all of us friends, strangers and fellow musicians.

Basinski is an established composer and with 24 long plays already under his belt his newest one might be one of his bests. Played live for the first time last year in Italy, «A Shadow In Time» is a subtle album of drone and meditative repetition. First track is a cathartic opening and the second and last, aptly titled “For David Robert Jones”, is Bowie’s eulogy. Spotify has the tracks reversed for some reason.
