Beginning his career under the moniker, Jetone, Tim Hecker was originally known to make glitchy-techno with some subtle ambient touches. Now working under his own name, Hecker's path has led to him fully embracing his ambient tendencies, crafting shape-shifting instrumental albums that substitute beats for hazy soundscapes, digitized effects and noisy dissonance. His music is meant to be approached with patience, as listeners looking for a quick fix will be put off by the slow-building atmospheres and unconventional song structures. But for ambient fans, Hecker's albums provide a wealth of beautiful moments waiting to be discovered. His work has led to commissions creating soundtracks to art installations and contemporary dance pieces.
