Experiential composer Tim Hecker comes to National Sawdust with his ninth official full-length album, Konoyo (“the world over here”). Largely recorded during several trips to Japan in collaboration with members of the Tokyo Gakuso ensemble, the album features Hecker’s signature manipulation of source material — keening strings are stretched into surreal, pixelated mirages; woodwinds warble and dissipate as fractal whispers of spatial haze; sparse gestures of percussion are chopped, isolated, and eroded, like disembodied signals from the afterlife. Performed live with a full ensemble, this show is a somber ceremony, suffused with profound ritual.
