Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career, he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch. 

Sled Island and the National Music Centre are pleased to present Hecker with opener Wish Lash (accompaniment and visuals by Callum Beckford).
