PRESENTED BY THE SUBSTATION AND ROOM40

Canadian composer Tim Hecker’s tectonic plates of sound have become a blueprint for a generation of artists interested in the potentials of dynamic harmony and density. Operating with an intensity shared by few others, his performances are recognised for their singular use of volume and sound pressure to saturate and heighten the embodied experience of the music. He creates cathedrals of ultraviolet music and through doing so uncovers previously unheard sound spectra.

Joining Tim is Yuin musician JWPATON whose recently released Structures record alternates sounds and field recordings gathered from both the natural and the human-made worlds to create rich and thick, time-stretched padded atmospheres.
