Tim Hecker (CAN/US)
Tim Hecker returns to Sonica after 8 years with his latest Love Streams album which was composed in collaboration with the Oscar winning composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Expect a loud and monumental mass of darkness and fog.
Bio: Tim Hecker is a groundbreaking ambiental electronic artist, who started his career in minimal electro with the moniker Jetone. In 2001, he started recording and performing under his own name, and in the same year, he released the album Haunt Me, Haunt Me, Do it Again, which marks the beginning of his explorations in auditory experiences. Two subsequent releases, Harmony in Ultraviolet and An Imaginary Country, follow the same path, while increasing the complexity of sound. The 2011 release, Ravedeath, 1972 cemented his reputation as one of experimental electronic music’s leading artists. As much a scientist as a musician, Hecker combines live instrumental recordings with studio manipulations to produce sounds that engage listeners on various levels.
