Tim Hecker

Any future compendium of contemporary electronic music will certainly include Tim Hecker and a considerable part of his discography – a body of work spanning twenty years and counting that repeatedly changed the way we listened to Heckler, and also the category where we placed his music; he went from the Hertzian fizziness of Radio Amor to Virgins, where he dove into the neo-classical form, and then came the Nipponese Konoyo, which he brought to Culturgest in 2018 joined by Kara-Lis Coverdale and a small Gagaku ensemble. His next album stemmed from the same geographical spot, though the final destination was bound to be an unexpected new spot, as befits an adventure into the unknown. It was therefore no surprise to find him next in a whaling expedition in the Arctic with his soundtrack for The North Water, a BBC co-production: Hecker’s music always semes to inhabit some vast geographical, cultural, or psychological territory, to which it unfailingly adds a new dimension.
