Tim Hecker

CA / 4AD

Montreal producer Tim Hecker made his initial breakthrough with experimental techno and IDM as Jetone, but has become known internationally for his ambient recordings mainly released through Kranky Records under his own name.

For his self-titled recordings, Hecker drew inspiration from pop culture and showcased his ideas within dense collages of found sounds and computer-generated noise. After recent collaborations with Ben Frost and Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin and the universal acclaim received by ‘Virgins’ (2013), Hecker just made his debut on 4AD with ‘Love Streams’, featuring vocals by the Icelandic Choir Ensemble and arrangements scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson. The sonic intensity of his live show has been paired with an experimental light component designed by Berlin’s MFO.
