NEHH presents... Julie Byrne

Standing only. Not wheelchair-user accessible.
American wanderer Julie Byrne's second album, Not Even Happiness, vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road – bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, as well as the unsolvable mysteries of love.

Nothing Ever Happens Here

NEHH Presents...Tim Hecker

Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch. Even so, the past few years have seen a minor renaissance in his discography –time seems to be fortifying his palette, rather than fossilising it.
