Tim Hecker – Gagaku Ensemble Performance

Kara-Lis Coverdale

Saturday 6 October

Start time: 8pm

Run time: approx 1 hour 50 minutes
Sets from Kara-Lis Coverdale and Tim Hecker will form one continuous performance – there will be no interval.

From sounds so gentle as to be almost floating on air to heavy unworldly tonality, Tim Hecker’s forthcoming performance of music from his forthcoming record Konoyo – a collaboration with traditional Japanese Gagaku musicians – forms a hybrid recalling electronic abstractions and psychedelic American minimalism. Taking his explorations of noise, dissonance and melody into new territories, the natural sounds of the instrumentation both ring freely and are treated with Hecker’s signature brutal sounds.

Opening the evening, regular collaborator Kara-Lis Coverdale creates colourful and dense arrangements with a unique approach to melody, harmony and sonic detail.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Bird On The Wire.
