More fantastic experimental electronic music from Canadian composer Tim Hecker, featuring a Tokyo gagaku ensemble. An ensemble of this type consists of at least 16 musicians playing only traditional Japanese woodwinds, strings and percussion instruments. It’s 30 minutes of immersive, addictive, and completely unique compositions that perfectly follows Hecker’s last album Konoyo, which also relied on gagaku sounds. Like most of Hecker’s music, it can be rough on ears or difficult to understand, but worth it in the end.
