The McNeil St Pumping Station New Music Festival featured electromatrician Tim Hecker in the 2011 fest. His work whacked the rafters. Hecker's work was released on MSPSNMF 2011: Architectural Explorations in Sound.

This week Hecker has released a majestic new work. Hear it on

And the MSPS Fest has a whole new sound. This year expect jazz (Kidd Jordan, Dickie Landry, etc) and beats (de la Mirdster, etc) as well as sonic cross-peninsula portages (Pete Fetterman).

Atmospheric field recordings, on-site trilobyte art from the cedars and iron particles of this city, will be presented by global recordist Simon Whetham. The Bristol, UK-based musician will present his explorations of Shreveport's molecular structure on Sat, Oct 12, at the site, today called Shreveport Waterworks Museum (142 N Common St).

Tickets for a Mr Kite bill of avant garde musicians and a metasmagoric evening are $20.

Highly recommended.
