Tim Hecker & Konoyo Ensemble

Friday, 29 March
Koninklijke Schouwburg

Over the course of 15 years and twelve solo and collaborative albums, Tim Hecker has cultivated a distinct brand of ‘ambient noise’ that is at once intensely physical and profoundly emotive. For his latest projects, ‘Konoyo’ and ‘Anoyo’, the Canadian composer and sound artist travelled to Japan to record with Motonori Miura and an ensemble of traditional gagaku musicians – players of a form of classical Japanese music that has been feature of the country’s imperial courts for centuries. Performed live at the Koninklijke Schouwburg, Tim Hecker & Konoyo Ensemble blend these ancient instrumentations with Hecker’s characteristic synthesisers, ambient drone and warm harmonic noise to create a stunning adaptation of old and new.
