William Basinski and Janek Schaefer have announced a new collaborative album. The composers will deliver ... On Reflection on April 29 via Temporary Residence.

Basinski and Schaefer worked to complete ... On Reflection over an eight-year period, collaborating remotely from their respective bases in Los Angeles and London, UK, between 2014 and 2022.

The five-song release is dedicated to Harold Budd, the ambient music legend and frequent Brian Eno collaborator who passed away in 2020 at age 84.

... On Reflection's opening track can be basked in below, where it is accompanied by a video showing the snowy opening sequence from James Elaine & William Basinski's forthcoming feature film Iceland Celeste. The album is also available for pre-order.

This September, Basinski will play Vancouver's Deep Blue Studios on his world tour. In 2020, he delivered album Lamentations, and had his Disintegration Loops examined in a 2021 documentary.
