SXSW 2021 Movie Review: “Disintegration Loops” Provides In-Depth Look at One of Ambient Music’s Greatest Minds

By: Dakota Arsenault

The first film watched during the 2021 SXSW festival was the documentary Disintegration Loops directed by David Wexler and chronically the history and impact of the landmark ambient album by artist William Basinski of the same name as the films title. The doc was shot in 2020, over Zoom as interviews with Basinski, other composers, music critics and even his father help us learn about the origins of the project, his career and the lasting cultural relevance his work has had.
