William Basinski - The Disintigration Loops I-IV

The typical images of nature presented in art are static. Poetry and paintings render a single scene, a moment captured outside of the decay of time. Here, William Basinski presents the cycle of nature in auditory form. The music contained in the Disintigration Loops is the auditory equivalent of struggle in life. Fuzz and static pulls at the warm, looping instrumentation, slowly decaying in agonizing beauty. Not only do we witness the serene beauty of nature, but the poignancy of its death.

srsly its like life and death fighting each other.
