Tim Hecker’s latest releases saw him make several trips to Japan to work with gagaku musicians from Tokyo Gakuso (the traditional ensemble of the Imperial Court), resulting in 2018’s Konoyo and the recent partner release, Anoyo. Both albums continue to find the Canadian electronic composer challenge the boundaries between noise, dissonance, and melody. As the New York Times put it, he plays “foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow-moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole.” Tim Hecker is an extensive, vigorous live performer, and the immense power and menace of his live shows makes him a contemporary master of volume and texture.
