“It must of course be coincidence that there are two Tim Hecker CDs in such a short time span. After 'Mirages' of last week, there is this week's 'Mort Aux Vaches' CD. As known this is a long running series by Staalplaat and they all contain live recordings made at the VPRO studio in Amsterdam. Unlike his 'Mirages' CD, Tim Hecker plays one long track, or maybe some one forgot to index the CD, as they sound like more tracks. Either way, much of what I said about 'Mirages' can be said about this work, although at the start of this CD I thought Hecker started to lean towards the real ambient music, but thankfully the grainy aspects of his previous work is maintained here. It comes, oddly enough, as a less brutal force this one. Odd, since one would expect that a live recording is usually the more brutal one. Not so with Hecker. He plays his stuff with great patience, letting things develop, taking their time to slowly unfold. Embedded in ambient structures, he plays his lo-bit resolution samples with a great sense of drama. Microsound meets deformed popmusic. “
