"Way back in 1979 William Basinski was stationed on the notorious Haight Street in San Francisco - it was affordable for artists back then. His partner, the artist James Elaine, would rescue old televisions from the street as families upgraded to more modern color models, and Basinski set about recording their peculiar fuzzy transmissions to reel-to-reel tape. His Norelco Continental deck had four speeds, so Basinski could use the pitch variance to create long, sprawling drone pieces. The final piece of the puzzle was a series of field recordings he made at his night job at a factory, which he combined with the TV static to develop "The Clocktower at the Beach", a mystifying long-form composition that's among the most stunning in Basinski's canon."
