Tim Hecker - Mirages

Label: Alien8 Recordings
Released: 2004
Style: Experimental, Ambient

"Tim Hecker’s latest full-length, Mirages, is a lesson of darkness, a midnight whisper revealing its true essence to the listener: an ambient-death-metal classic in waiting.

We hope you find, as we do, Mirages further erodes the vapid predispositions of electronic music, uncovering a terrain where dissonance and melody coincide in a near-bohemian unison. Hecker has certainly developed a unique approach to music in an increasingly overcrowded and generic field. This is a challenging work which reconciles a highly experimental approach to songcraft that is at once beautiful and unnerving. As Mr. Hecker explains: “Mirages is the sound of the ruby-horned deer sharing sweet lies in the night.”' - Label
