Cascade – William Basinski
I guess I could say this is a distorted piano loop with some random textures on top, but I don’t think that does the complexity of this justice. It’s beautiful, meditative, hypnotic, and subtly minimal.
“I wanted Cascade to become this crystalline organism like a star or a liquid crystal spaceship, a jellyfish traveling through the galaxy…” – William Basinski
To me it just seems like a perfect track to play on a wintry Christmas eve.
