a compelling reinvention of hecker's sound, mixing his knack for cavernous, distorted melody with a strong influence from early minimalist music & moments of jarring horror.

hecker employs woodwinds, piano & synthesisers to embrace what digital music does not do naturally - shifting out of time, out of tune & out of phase. in a mode that is reminiscent of his collaborative work with daniel lopatin (oneohtrix point never), he often eschews crescendo or traditional notions of timbre at all, almost travelling sideways from the re-appropriated orchestra swells of ‘prism’ to the soft, textural melodies, distant pulse & descent into sawing noise on ‘stab variation'. "it's masterful, though it'll leave you feeling like a speck of gravel in a self-destructing world" 8/10 - uncut, ""Ranging from percussive repetition & delicate minimalism to blurred abstraction & kosmiche illuminations" 4/5 - mojo.
