Tim Hecker

Biography

Tim Hecker is a Canadian composer and sound artist who has spent the last decade inhabiting a unique intersection between noise, dissonance, and melody. In his varied and celebrated works, digital and organic sources tightly intertwine. The result is a hybrid aesthetic that recalls electronic abstraction and psychedelic minimalism. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch. Cultivating enigmatic, uneasy soundscapes, the beauty and crush of Tim’s sonically processed noise has been compared to “tectonic color plates” and “cathedral electronic 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.” – The New York Times
