2011 album from the Canadian Electronic musician and sound artist. Recorded in a church in Reykjavik, Iceland and using a pipe organ as the primary sound source, this piece is essentially a live recording. In reality, it exists in a nether world between captured live performance and meticulous studio work, melding the two approaches to sonic artifice as a unity. It is in parts a document of air circulating within a wooden room, and also a pagan work of physical resonance within a space once reserved for the hallowed breath of the divine.

Ravedeath 1972 is a wonderful work of art and a rich feast for your ears. For anyone interested in ambitious ambient electronica, this is a fantastic place to begin. The lines between "classical" and "popular" blur. Give yourself room to discover Hecker's latest opus. You will not be disappointed.
Relaxation - this could work.
Focusing at computer or paper orientated tasks - this definitely helps.
Disquieting tones to stir something inside - it will do that, too
Beautiful textures, and electronic "riffs", if you will - yep, has that too.
This is a beautiful work. It is all those things I mentioned above, woven into one. That is strange - to be "relaxing" yet disquieting....but you have to hear it to understand, and maybe on two or three listens you will agree.
True, like another commentator said, it is not for everyone, so some might not find what I am talking about. For the person who may be an empath, an introvert, anxious, spirtually connected, or simply sad, Ravedeath 1972 is your mind in liquid form. (No, I do not do drugs - I've got Tim Hecker music, after all!)
