Label: Software
Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Tim Hecker both have a thing for buzzing, voluminous drones, so what happens when the two musicians get together? Instrumental Tourist, recorded and mixed in a little over a week, offers a remarkable fusion of their individual styles. Lopatin's signature is audible in keening synthesizer leads and new age affect; the darker, more serious Hecker shows his hand with thrumming pipe organs and oodles of distortion. But their meandering, freeform ambient music is more than just a sum of its inputs. At its best, it's the conduit to another world.
