William Basinski performing Lamentations It’s hard to paint a picture of twentieth-century instrumental music without referencing American composer William Basinski. This ambient wizard has been in activity for decades, composing tranquil and still, yet deeply moving and full soundscapes for longer than many. His latest, last year’s ‘Lamentations’, continues his streak into extraordinary and unique sonic worldbuilding, further proving his legendary status in the genre.
