On Time Out of Time - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

The structure of his latest effort, On Time Out Of Time, does not deviate from this oppressive truth and makes use of the sound matter from the cataclysmic assimilation of two distant black holes, 1.3 billion years ago to suggest at this impermanence. What results is the sound of time falling in on itself and the two-track album is as imperious as you might imagine. In utilising exclusive source recordings from the interferometers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, it is difficult to shake the feeling that both Basinski and the album are treading in soundscapes hitherto unexplored.
