5 stars Tim Hecker has a very clear picture of what he wants and how to get there, in fact, he has never stopped looking for his true language in electronic music, the personal one, not its mirror images nor the subtly borrowed ones. From his first release to its last ones this has been his quest, in a not flawless discography, you can say whatever, but all of his outputs are true to the bone, not anyone´s else but his.

Konoyo (2018), has its conceptual inspiration taken from his visits to Japan, but do not expect Mr. Hecker to actually recreate what is not his, that is why it all turns out to be just a reference music composition wise. Let me say that he envisions his language in an interpretation of what Tim Hecker will sound in a totally opposite geographical context and of course with different musical canons.

And oh surprise! This transfiguration turns out to be one of his friendlier outputs, of course in his own terms.

Konoyo is a 7 instrumental tracks release with consice & varied as creative acoustic/electronic music compositions perfectly timed without expendable moments.

To set this album, Progressive Music sub-genres speaking, it is a merge between the atmospheric/cosmic/drone/noise world of Prog. Electronics & enough "old school" Rock in Oppostion/ Avant-Prog daring songwriting impetus to create a unique 5 stars masterpiece.

So, expect to travel these foreign sonic lands, Tim Hecker´s way and no one else´s, and enjoy the ride!
