Tim Hecker Lines Up Audiovisual Collaboration for Toronto's Images Festival
Toronto's Images Festival celebrates independent and experimental film and video, but the program often includes some attractions for music lovers as well. While the full 2013 lineup hasn't yet been announced, Montreal soundscape master Tim Hecker has signed on for the opening night gala.

Hecker will perform at St. Anne's Church on April 11 in collaboration with American filmmaker Robert Todd. An announcement describes the show like this: "Usually seen performing in near-total darkness, Hecker's volcanic soundscapes will be brought to life in multi-sensorial glory by Todd's double-projection images of landscape and nature. "

Audiovisual tuntablist SlowPitch will open the night. Tickets are on sale at Images Festival's store. They will be available from Rotate This and Soundscapes starting March 22.

This year's Images Festival runs from April 11 to 20 in dozens of venues in and around Toronto. According to an update on the festival's website, the full lineup will be mapped out on March 21.
