This Friday, April 10, Canadian ambient and drone artist Tim Hecker will be performing at the Horn Gallery. Currently based in Montreal while working at McGill University, Hecker’s work under his legal name was born out of a departure from his techno productions as Jetone. Since the turn of the century, Hecker has cultivated an idiosyncratic voice in the world of Western experimental music. He has released albums on outstanding labels such as Mille Plateaux and Kranky as well as collaborated with other giants of the left-field like Ben Frost and Dan Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never.

Below are some standout tracks from five of Hecker’s albums — enjoy!

Virginal I (from 2013’s Virgins)

In The Fog I-III (from 2011’s Ravedeath, 1972)

Blood Rainbow (from 2006’s Harmony In Ultraviolet)

Celestina (from 2004’s Mirages)

I’m Transmitting Tonight (from 2003’s Radio Amor)
