Sometimes a show comes along that you already know will quickly fall into the realm of legendary status in the Dublin cultural canon and the extraordinary Tim Hecker playing the Unitarian Church is one such show. Hecker is a Canadian-based and ultra-prolific producer & composer who has been pushing the margins of electro-acoustic composition since 2001 on legendary labels such as Kranky, Fat Cat, Alien8 & Mille Plateaux. His work has variously described as “structured ambient”, “tectonic color plates” and “cathedral electronic music” but what we can confidently assert is that they are some of the most powerful recordings of the 21st century, equal parts beautiful and terrifying and there could be no more appropriate a setting in Dublin to witness Hecker’s reverberant masterpieces than the Unitarian Church on Stephen’s Green.
Ravedeath 1972, Hecker’s 2011 opus which was engineered by Ben Frost featured at the business end of many 2011 end-of-year polls and won both the Polaris Prize & the Juno award for best Canadian electronic album.
