2005. A new composition featuring a recently discovered tape loop melody from the earliest piano and tape experiments, c. 1979.

"The main loop in this piece is one of the original piano and tape experiments from my early days as a composer. A few of the derivative piano variations have been released: A Red Score in Tile, Chrome Primitive, some of the Melancholia pieces. Some are still to come in the archival series. This theme, a melody made up of one of the most common chord changes in western music, to me, is one that evokes theJapanese concept of "mono no aware" which translates roughly to 'the sadness of things'."
William Basinski, November 11, 2005
