Texas born, but New York based, musican and composer William Basinski specialises in creating music using tape loops, found sounds and shortwave radio. He’s released a number of albums on his own 2062 label, as well as other imprints such as Raster-Noton. The 2003 album Melancholia is a collection of short, untitled pieces. It’s an aptly named collection.
This video of one of the tracks was filmed at New York’s Flushing Meadows Park.
