Tim Hecker In Concert: Moogfest 2011

November 4th, 2011

Episode 325 of 429 episodes

Few working composers transcend their compositional means as thoroughly as Tim Hecker. Hecker's sixth and most recent album — titledRavedeath, 1972— is an enveloping, almost suffocating exploration of noise music.Hecker buries melodies and rhythms in a deluge of dissonance and sound, obfuscating instrumentation; sifting through the thick, ambient textures of "The Piano Drop" is as gratifying as it is hypnotic.Hear Hecker's textured noise in a full concert, recorded live on October 30, 2011 at Moogfest in Asheville, N.C.
