In the wake of his recent contribution to the Touch Seven series (early June saw the release of his “ Spliced ” with Marcus Davidson), the Touch imprint has now detailed the new album of veteran audio artist Philip Jeck, the visual creator, choreographer and, above all, master turntablist who’s not interested in scratching techniques or aggressive noise, but in “plunderphonica”, the electronic manipulation of existing records –with only the help of two old pick-ups recovered from the trash and a small Casio that has the ability to sample a couple of seconds of audio, he generates a high level of soundscape enchantment. Jeck’s new record, described as a meditation on a passage from a poem by Gerard Manley, “The Wreck of the Deutschland”, will be coming out around 28th September, entitled “An Ark for the Listener”.
