More Info:

Tim Hecker has revealed details of his latest album, and first record for 4AD. The Canadian composer will release Love Streams on April 8, 2016. Love Streams takes its cues from the avant-classical orchestration and extreme electronic processing of his previous full-length, 2013ís 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.
