Man ForeverWilliam BasinskiWilliam Basinski, the fascinating multi-instrumentalist and sound artist best known for his internationally-acclaimed 9/11 piece, The Disintegration Loops, creates haunting soundscapes that have crossed over from the avant-garde to the indie world. He will create a new piece in collaboration with Man Forever, a percussion ensemble helmed by John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions), best known as the drummer in Oneida and widely considered one of the best drummers today. “I was interested in exploring the pathos, space and emotional nuances that Basinski squeezes from his loops and see if these kinds of sensibilities could be found in the drums and the drummers performing,” says Colpitts.

Listen to EMF curator Judd Greenstein introduce this year's concerts.
