Tim Hecker - Anoyo
May 19, 2019
72
For twenty years now, the Canadian Tim Hecker has been interacting with sound material through his albums, starting mostly with a concept, an image. After his very successful album "Konoyo", Tim Hecker shows here a clearer and less tortured facet. The album "Anoyo" having been recorded during the same Japanese sessions as "Konoyo", it relies on the same bases as the latter. We are here again dealing with the reinterpretation of a traditional Japanese style, the gagaku, combined with drone and ambient experiments by Tim Hecker. The two records echo each other. What's really good about "Konoyo" and "Anoyo" is that you can listen to them as a whole, without stopping, and it's really beautiful. Where other ambient artists explore classical music, Tim Hecker highlights traditional music, less known, but just as lyrical and fascinating.

Best tracks: "That world", "You never were", "Step away from Konoyo", "Into the void", "Not alone".

Worst track: "Is but a simulated blur"
