the 4 volumes of 'The Disintegration Loops' suite are now available separately, as individually packaged albums.

The audio was remastered in 2012 from the original master tapes, and the artwork is packaged in deluxe old-style tip-on gatefold jackets. for a collection of music built around the poignant inevitability of decay, there has been a great many hopeful & inspired words devoted to this groundbreaking suite : stunning, ethereal, majestic, transfixing, life-affirming. for fans of gas, the caretaker or steve reich. “so hypnotic that it was immediately understood as a classic of ambient music… the beauty of the music is not easy to explain...the moods & textures of these pieces are all different but they become more powerful in relation to one another” 10/10 - pitchfork.
