Mirages is the third studio album by Canadian electronic music musician Tim Hecker, released on September 21, 2004 on Alien8 Recordings. It is described on the Alien8 website as “an ambient-death-metal classic in waiting.” The album is composed primarily of heavily distorted and processed guitar. Relatively free of beats, this album moves rhythmically along in a glitch fashion, acquiring rhythm through pulsating or droning bass and some sounds resembling digital malfunction. In addition to sharing similar moods and tones, the tracks bleed into each other, making this a nearly seamless composition. The distortion guitar and feedback elements with delicate underlying melodies may call to mind the textural rock compositions of shoegaze.
