William Basinski: “D|p 1.1” (Disintegration Loops, 2011)

William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops series is a document of magnetic tape loops actually mechanically disintegrating as they loop on a reel to reel over the course of an hour. Set to actual footage of the collapsed World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, it’s a haunting eulogy to the fallen as much as an expression of the fragility of things.
