Love Streams takes its cues from the avant-classical orchestration and extreme electronic processing of his previous full-length, 2013’s Virgins, but shaped into more melancholic, ultraviolet hues. Inspired by notions of 15th century choral scores (particularly those by Josquin des Prez), transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths, the album was assembled gradually, with layers of studio-tracked keyboards, choir and woodwinds being woven into the mix, then molded and disfigured through complex programming. Like hearing some ancient strain of sacred music corrupted by encryption, Hecker admits to thinking about ideas like “liturgical aesthestics after Yeezus” and the “transcendental voice in the age of auto-tune,” during its creation.

The title of Hecker’s new work can be interpreted any number of ways – erotic, technological, spiritual – although his own conception is appropriately vast, calling it “a riff on the ubiquity and nihilism of streaming of all forms of life.” Now we stream more than we love. Nowadays music too frequently resembles a product, or white noise. With a career spanning fifteen years, Tim Hecker belongs to a select camp actively resisting this undertow, this reduction in significance.

Not sure what to make of that description though, kind of cringy

I'd say Yeezus is less "liturgical aesthestics" (Think he means "aesthetics") and more "Kanye West's ego". Or maybe that's, like, the point, yeah?

 

Either way, corrupted sacred music and digitally warped orchestras sounds lush. Reminds me a tad of what Lauren Bousfield/Nero's Day at Disneyland was going for

Think that's just long handed for waveshaping and granular synthesis

Lol you're right though mcbpete. The description is ridiculous, but if it's anything close to reality then the album should be interesting. Virgins was one of my favorites from a couple years ago, so I'm definitely going to pay attention... though the Kanye reference makes me cringe.

Looking forward to hearing this, Virgins made me interested again after my favorite, Harmony in Ultraviolet. And yeah, that cover is p. cool

 

As for the set of accompanying paragraphs, any one of us at age 17 could have dredged up a review like this for an album we liked. That particular cringe will bare nothing on the listening experience.

you know when you throw a mogwai track into a dsp mangler set to 'mild'? Well that will be every track on the new Tim Hecker album.

just like the last one

and the one before that...

sounds great , very curious about his interpretation of 15th century choral music even his music always had some medieval touch to it.

was pretty into tim hecker's music til i saw him live and ugh. this exactly. emotional climax during first 5 minutes and 60 additional minutes of plateaux.

 

again, still a keen fan of his studio material so i will check this out. the description hints at something less FULL EXTREME : >
