    A Shadow In Time


    Includes Vinyl-Only Mix Not Available On Any Other Format


    Pressed Onto Audiophile-Quality 100% Virgin Vinyl


    "Deeply melancholic and subdued,
    music to embrace in the deep of a
    sleepless night." - The Quietus


    "Euphoric and transparent."
    - The Wire


    "There is something oddly
    otherworldly and plaintive about the
    whole thing." - Drowned In Sound


    World-renowned as one of experimental music's most vital and
    impressionistic composers of the past few decades, William
    Basinski's tape loop works have been especially influential,
    particularly on the historic series, The Disintegration Loops,
    where distorted, orchestral tape samples burrow deep into the
    listener's psyche through meditative repetition. On his new album,
    A Shadow In Time, Basinski plunges deeper than ever for the
    plaintive, solitary eulogy to David Bowie, aptly titled "For David
    Robert Jones." Conversely, the title track, "A Shadow In Time," is
    a subtle, celestial escalation of melody and drone. The result is
    one of the most truly transcendent pieces of music he has ever
    committed to - or wrung from - tape.


    William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer
    who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years in
    NYC and most recently, California. Employing obsolete
    technology and analogue tape loops, his haunting and
    melancholy soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and
    resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of
    time. His epic 4-disc masterwork, The Disintegration Loops
    received international critical acclaim and was one of Pitchfork's
    Top Albums of the Decade. Basinski was chosen by Music
    Director, Antony Hegarty to create music for the Robert Wilson
    opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic which had its
    world premiere at the Manchester International Festival in July
    2011 and toured Europe in 2012 and North America in 2013.

    The Deluge

    White Colored Vinyl


    Cascade and The Deluge are variations on the latest tape-loop
    and delay composition from the inimitable William Basinski.
    Cascade is the CD/Digital variant, and The Deluge is the vinyl LP
    companion - pressed on exquisite 180 gram white colored vinyl.


    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 feedback
    loops of different lengths, creating a spiraling crescendo of
    overtones that eventually fades away to silence. In the
    denouement, a series of limpid piano loops leads to an urgent
    orchestral theme that builds and gradually dies.

    performed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth
    Hall and La Batie Festival in Geneva, Switzerland. Basinski is
    currently touring the world in support of his latest works, Cascade

    Offshore

    Mentored by Daniel Lanois, Daniel Burton has been putting his project-oriented stamp on a variety of records the last ten years and it has all coalesced into this career-defining work. Offshore is one continuous piece, made up of six distinct songs. It's equally beautiful and noisy, composed though loose, akin to the late '80s/early '90s 4AD-laden world of shoegaze wash-rock like Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Mark Hollis, their predecessor Peter Gabriel, or modern day saint William Basinski. In the Lanois/Eno tradition, Burton collected an all-star cast to flesh out his vision with members of Horace Pinker, Olo, Black Mountain, Windsor For The Derby, Unwed Sailor, and Tortoise.

    Black Origami

    Planet Mu are very excited to announce Jlin's long awaited second album "Black Origami." A percussion-led tour de force, it's a creation that seals her reputation as a unique producer with an exceptional ability to make riveting rhythmic music. "Black Origami" is driven by a deep creative thirst which she describes as "this driving feeling that I wanted to do something different, something that challenged me to my core. Black Origami for me, comes from letting go creatively, creating with no boundaries. The simple definition of origami is the art of folding and constructing paper into a beautiful, yet complex design. Composing music for me is like origami, only I'm replacing paper with sound. I chose to title the album Black Origami because like Dark Energy I still create from the beauty of darkness and blackness. The willingness to go into the hardest places within myself to create for me means that I can touch the Infinity."


    Spirituality and movement are both at the core of "Black Origami", inspired largely by her ongoing collaborations with Indian dancer/movement artist Avril Stormy Unger whom she met and collaborated with at her debut performance for the Unsound festival - "There is a fine line between me entertaining a person and my spirituality. Avril, who collaborates with me by means of dance, feels the exact same way. Movement played a great role in Black Origami. The track Carbon 7 is very inspired by the way Avril moves and dances. Our rhythms are so in sync at times it kind of scares us. When there is something I can't quite figure out when it comes to my production, it's like she senses it. Her response to me is always You'll figure it out. Once I figure it out it's like time and space no longer exist."


    Similar time shifting/folding/disrupting effects can be heard throughout the record - especially on "Holy Child" an unlikely collaboration with minimalist legend William Basinski. She also collaborates again with Holly Herndon on "1%", while Halcyon Veil producer Fawkes' voice is on "Calcination" and Cape Town rapper Dope Saint Jude provides vocals for "Never Created, Never Destroyed.
