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.  Even so, the past few years have seen a minor renaissance in his discography – time seems to be fortifying his palette, rather than fossilising it.
