Shattered Streams

Shattered Streams is an experiment in musical ephemerality, presenting original music from 31 artists throughout the month of May. Each song is available to stream on a loop for a maximum period of 24 hours, degrading over that time until they simply disappear.

Inspired equally by the fleeting ecstasy of William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops and the modern emphasis on streaming-centric platforms conforming to listener’s usage and fidelity needs, Shattered Streams presents degradation of both audio and visuals to create an immersive yet ultimately finite listening experience.

Fennesz’s contribution to Shattered Streams will be broadcast on 9 May 2016.
