|Check out a full album preview of the new offering from Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin with Instrumental Tourist, an experimentation in ambient electronic sounds. You may have heard work from Daniel Lopatin before, under the name Oneohtrix Point Never. Tim Hecker of course is THE Tim Hecker, who's given us work over the past decade with alternating between, glitch / errortronica and ambient-drone sounds. Their new collaborative album Instrumental Tourist is streaming right courtesy of NPR Music.
NPR Music is saying "The crafting of sound that goes on in their collaboration — and in a concert of theirs I witnessed recently at Moogfest — feels a bit like improvisations by two talented but outlandish jazz musicians. The sparks fly on Instrumental Tourist, as the album's soundscapes hypnotize, jar, fascinate and even annoy. There's a sense of playfulness to Hecker and Lopatin's work, even as it's virtually impossible to tell who's playing what."
