Ambient music's willowy pope, Tim Hecker, one of the leading figures in experimental electronic music today, whose unique and influential sound is a blend of delicate noise, drone and sublime electroacoustic sounds, is coming to Athens on April 19th 2023, at Megaron Athens Concert Hall.
JUNO AWARD-WINNING Canadian composer, producer and sound artist
RICHLY TEXTURED AMBIENT MUSIC
“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”
NEW YORK TIMES
Tim Hecker is a Canadian musician and sound artist, born in Vancouver. Since 2001, he has produced a range of audio works for labels including Kranky & 4AD. His works have been described as “structured ambient”, “tectonic color plates” and “cathedral electronic music”. More to the point, he has focused on exploring the intersection of noise, dissonance and melody, fostering an approach to songcraft which is both physical and emotive. His repertoire spans 10 albums over nearly two decades including the seminal and critically acclaimed Ravedeath 1972, Harmony in Ultraviolet and Virgins. He is frequently commissioned for contemporary dance pieces, sound-art installations and film scores & is currently working on a 5 part series for the BBC entitled ‘The North Water’ directed by Andrew Haigh, as well as independent film ‘Lucifer’ by Austrian filmmaker Peter Brunner. Both are slated for release in 2021.
