William Basinski, Mumdance, Sepalcure + more Create 24 hour Tracks for Red Bull Music Academy

"Listen As Songs Loop And Disintegrate In An Ephemeral Listening Experience"

Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA) recently launched Shattered Streams, a new sonic experiment to coincide with RBMA Festival that is currently underway in NYC.

Shattered Streams features original music from 31 artists throughout the month of May. Each song is available only on the Shattered Streams site, streaming on a loop for a maximum period of 24 hours and degrading over time until they simply disappear. 

According to the press release, the project is "Inspired equally by William Basinski’s The Disintegration Loops and the modern emphasis on streaming-centric platforms conforming to listener’s usage and fidelity needs."

Users can adjust the length of the audio loop, for however long it is still available, which is accompanied by a unique visual animation that will also be degraded over time. 

Williams Basinski's audio is playing now, while the complete schedule is listed below, including upcoming streams from the likes of Joey Anderson, Sepalcure, Mumdance, Heiroglyphic Being, Wolf Eyes and much more.
