Tim Hecker
Ravedeath 1972

This isn’t the brutal sensory blast that the amazing title might suggest. It’s creepy pipe organ/piano/synth drone music, recorded in a church in Reykjavik. Super unnerving, but equally beautiful and engaging. It’s one of Hecker’s best works for sure, and is released on double LP and CD on Kranky.

Tim Hecker
Anoyo

Here is another chance to Hecker. Anoyo emerges from the same sessions as his previous album Konoyo which means it is in collaboration with members of Tokyo Gakuso. Anoyo, however, is a starker album that is described as barren, desolate and skeletal. Music for solitude, a place which is increasingly required in order to get away from this hustle bustle world. 

Tim Hecker
Konoyo

Master sonic architect Tim Hecker returns to Kranky with an album which takes inspiration from conversations with a recently departed buddy. 'Konoyo' was mostly recorded in a Japanese temple just outside Tokyo in collaboration with gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso. Hecker manipulates their source sounds (strings, woodwinds, percussion) and re-shapes and sculpts the raw material into his own vision, focussing on negative space. The resulting sombre mood has a ritual/ceremonial weight - as though he were channelling communications from the great beyond.

Tim Hecker
Radio Amor

A new opportunity to experience the earlier work of beloved dronester Tim Hecker with this reissue of his 2003 second album Radio Amor. This one is focused and powerful, with perhaps a little less of the mellow counterpoints to the harshness that we find on later Hecker albums. Must hear stuff if you don’t know it already. On Kranky.

Tim Hecker
Mirages

'Mirages' is one of ambient musician and noise thrill-seeker Tim Hecker's earliest works, originally released in 2004. Back in the days of its initial release, Alien8 described the record as a "death metal ambient classic in waiting", which sums up the harsh, often dissonant soundscapes Hecker was interested in making in his early days. This record is glitchy, choppy and above all blunt, an unsentimental take on a musician who has gone on to make some of the most emotive ambient music out there. It's good to be evil sometimes, Tim. You can now grab 'Mirages' from Kranky/Alien8 as part of a lovely reissue initiative.

Norberg / Apondalifa

Room40, the Australian experimental label run by Lawrence English, has just ticked over to its fifteenth year of operation. To celebrate, they are re-pressing a number of works that have slipped out of print, such as Apondalifa by Tim Hecker. First released as a 7” many years ago, this heavy drone-swarm is now paired with Norberg on a 12” LP.

Tim Hecker
Love Streams

Brand new full-length from Tim Hecker, who here brings his flaring waves of electronics into contact with woodwinds and the Icelandic Choir Ensemble (as arranged by Johann Johannsson). Love Streams builds on previous album Virgins, and was partly recorded in the same Reykjavik studio. CD or double LP on 4AD.

Tim Hecker
Virgins

Tim Hecker’s 2012 album Virgins found the ambient wunderkind working with live ensembles and acoustic instruments more than previously, and also has a lofty, quasi-spiritual sense to it. Those instruments are sometimes clearly distinguishable, and sometimes smeared and abstracted by digital processes, just the way Tim likes them. On Kranky.

Tim Hecker
Harmony In Ultraviolet

Harmony In Ultraviolet still sounds out as one of Tim Hecker’s finest achievements: a particularly grand and coherent suite that shifts seamlessly between sparse drone and shuddering noise. One of the immersive greats of the 2010’s, this is an album you can really allow to carry you off. Available from Kranky.

Tim Hecker
An Imaginary Country

A 2009 example of the very fine work of Tim Hecker. An Imaginary Country is the album wherein Tim explicitly set out to conjure up the impression of a whole landscape using his washes of sound, and he pretty much nails it: this country is definitely one I’d like to visit. Colourful and bright and lush abstract electronic music, on Kranky.
