SYN004 - Hecker - "2 track 12" LP

We are completely obsessed with Xenakis' 'la légende d’Er'. For us it is the greatest single electronic word made thus far. This German character Hecker has taken this batton and run with it in a way that no one else has dared approach. Having heard a limited cd release of these pieces we were determined to put these on to vinyl. There is something about heavily 'digital' music being released on this format that appeals to us immensly. Hecker has since gone on to have work presented at Tate modern and has recently released an LP on Warner classic (with haswell). Still the most fried jewel in the digital dungeon.
