Tim Hecker: That World

Drawing its material from the very same sessions that produced last year's Konoyo, prolific producer, Tim Hecker, has announced the release of Anoyo (which translates to "the world over there") a stripped back and more earthy accompaniment to his previous record.

The entire album is inspired by gagaku, a classical form of Japanese music, and like Konoyo it was recorded with members of Tokyo Gakuso.

An awe-inspiring nine-minute piece, That World, serves as the album's opener and our introduction to it, and it's a magnificent ambient piece that complements its predecessor through its directness and subtle grandeur.

Anoyo will be out May 10th, 2019 via Kranky.
