More Info

"Cascade and The Deluge are variations on the latest tape-loop and delay composition from the inimitable William Basinski. In Cascade, a single ancient lilting piano tape loop repeats endlessly carrying one along in its tessellating current. In The Deluge, the same loop is processed through a series of feed-back loops of different lengths creating a spiraling crescendo of overtones that eventually fade away to silence. In the denouement, a series of limpid piano loops leads to an urgent orchestral theme that builds and gradually dies away." [label info]
