Tim Hecker with the Konoyo Ensemble + Kara-Lis Coverdale

Silk St London Greater London

From Saturday, October 6 2018 at 08:30 pm until Sunday, October 7 2018 at 12:00 am

Digital and organic sonics come together in a special performance from the electronic producer accompanied by a Gagaku court ensemble.

From sounds so gentle as to be almost floating on air to heavy unworldly tonality, Hecker’s forthcoming performance of music from his forthcoming record Konoyo – a collaboration with traditional Japanese Gagaku musicians – forms a hybrid recalling electronic abstractions and psychedelic American minimalism. Taking his explorations of noise, dissonance, and melody into new territories, the natural sounds of the instrumentation both ring freely and are treated with Hecker’s signature brutal sounds. 

Opening the evening, regular collaborator Kara-Lis Coverdale creates colourful and dense arrangements with a unique approach to melody, harmony and sonic detail.
