A sound sculptor who has spent years making atmospheric music festooned with ominous synths and cacophonous bursts of noise, Tim Hecker is seemingly able to take any sample and turn it into something surprisingly different. Last year, he released an album called Konoyo, which reinterprets recordings of the Japanese classical music group Tokyo Gakuso, transforming them into droning symphonies formed from unfamiliar instruments. Hecker's new album Anoyo uses recordings from the same sessions, but he uses a lighter touch while processing them, leaving more the of the original music intact. At Thalia Hall, Hecker will be joined by an ensemble to perform his recent music, with support from Canadian electronic musician Kara-Lis Cloverdale.
