I saw an event last week where Reza Negarestani did a philosophy reading before Chimerization was played back (or performed?! I have no idea if Hecker was actually there). It was really surprisingly good. First of all, mixing philosophy with this kind of music genuinely made it thought-provoking and trippier, in (what I imagine as) a 60s happening kind of way. Just felt great because so much music isn't challenging conventions of music, much less abstract thought, and as someone who's not into spoken word or poetry stuff I was surprised how much I got into it. And secondly, Hecker's music sounds amazing in 6-channel surround sound.
I am kind of confused though, whether this release will be different from the download version that's available: chimerization.documenta.de/ The performance definitely was.
