WILLIAM BASINSKI’S FALL TOUR RESCHEDULE

Due to increasing health and safety concerns related to COVID-19, William Basinski’s Fall 2021 US tour dates have been postponed by the artist, and the Portland date has been rescheduled to September 29, 2022 at Holocene.

All tickets purchased for either of the previous Holocene dates will be honored for this new date. Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding during this extraordinary time. 

Please stay safe and sane!



William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years in NYC and most recently, California. Employing obsolete technology and analogue tape loops, his haunting and melancholy soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. His epic 4-disc masterwork, The Disintegration Loops received international critical acclaim and was chosen as one of the top 50 albums of 2004 by Pitchfork Media. The Temporary Residence deluxe LP box-set reissue from 2012 was awarded best re-issue of the year and a score of 10 on Pitchfork. Installations and films made in collaboration with artist-filmmaker, James Elaine have been presented in festivals and museums internationally, and his concerts are presented to sold out crowds around the world. Basinski was chosen by Music Director, Antony Hegarty to create music for the Robert Wilson opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic which had its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival in July 2011 and toured Europe in 2012 and North America in 2013. Orchestral transcriptions of The Disintegration Loops by Maxim Moston have been performed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth Hall and La Batie Festival in Geneva, Switzerland, Dark Mofo Festival in Hobart Tasmania and most recently Pitchfork Midwinter Festival with the Chicago Philharmonic. Basinski is currently touring the world in support of his latest work, “On Time Out of Time” which was released on March 8th, 2019 on Temporary Residence/2062/USA.

Vaccine Policy

In our continued efforts to keep our community safe, and in response to the omicron variant, we have updated our COVID policy. Beginning January 6, 2022, Holocene will require customers to show proof they have received their COVID19 vaccination booster shot, if they are eligible to receive one. 

If they are eligible for the booster, but have not yet received theirs, they can instead provide a professionally-administered negative COVID test for entry, taken within 24 hours of show door time. 

If they are vaccinated but ineligible for their booster, (2nd shot of Moderna or Pfizer received less than 6 months ago, or Johnson & Johnson less than 2 months ago) then proof of that vaccination will suffice at the door.

For those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, we can allow a professionally administered negative COVID test, taken within 24 hours of show door time. However, this requires advance permission from venue staff – please contact hc@holocene.org if this applies to you.

We continue to require masks at all times indoors when not actively drinking or eating, in accordance with the state of Oregon mandate.

If you have any issues with this policy, you can request a refund up to 14 days prior to the event by reaching out to hc@holocene.org
