On Time Out of Time
temporary residence ltd.
in a move completely extraordinary and entirely in-keeping with this man’s vision, this record features music made by sampling the sound of two distant massive black holes from over a billion years ago.
The effect is to give basinski’s soundworlds a cosmic inflection, and the time spent in their grip a time for dreaming outwards rather than inwards. ‘On Time Out of Time’ is a suite of works originally commissioned for the 2017 installations ‘ER=EPR’ and 'Orbihedron' by artists Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand. The CD version features two tracks: The 40-minute title track as well as “4(E+D)4(ER+EPR)”, a live take recorded during the aforementioned installation. The vinyl format features two exclusive mixes of the title track made especially for the vinyl format. “At its best, William Basinski’s music inspires the sort of rapturous testimony usually reserved for peak experiences, cult leaders and the dead.” – Pitchfork
