William Basinski

Avant-garde vanguardist, composer and all-round good guy William Basinski is to curate a clutch of shows at Hackney’s St John Church in London in March 2014.

With solo Swans Michael Gira (12 Mar), and a split bill featuring rarely-seen minimalist icons Charlemagne Palestine and Rhys Chatham (20 Mar), the only acts confirmed so far, the residency is meant to recreate the ‘vibe’ of Basinki’s famed Arcadia space in Brooklyn, a mecca for experimental artists in the 1990s.
