Tim Hecker is a Juno Award-winning Canadian composer and musician, born in Vancouver. In the past two decades, he has produced a wide output, released by the likes of Kranky and 4AD. He focuses on exploring the intersection of noise, dissonance, and melody in his work, fostering an approach to songcraft which is both physical and emotive, his work being described as “structured ambient”, “tectonic color plates”, and “cathedral electronic music”.
His discography spans over 10 albums including the critically acclaimed Ravedeath 1972, Harmony in Ultraviolet, and Virgins.
Hecker also composes original scores, most recently for the BBC series The North Water and the Brandon Cronenberg movie Infinity Pool.
