Few working composers transcend their compositional means as thoroughly as Tim Hecker, who produces soundscapes that feel entirely organic. Hecker's sixth and most recent album — titled Ravedeath, 1972 — is an enveloping, almost suffocating exploration of noise music.

Hecker buries melodies and rhythms in a deluge of dissonance and sound, obfuscating instrumentation; sifting through the thick, ambient textures of "The Piano Drop" is as gratifying as it is hypnotic.

Hear Hecker's textured noise in a full concert, recorded live at Moogfest in Asheville, N.C.
