Philip Jeck‘s Suite is a vinyl release which is comprised of various edits and mixes captured from recordings of various live concerts of his. This method of composition is also how he compiles his CDs – reworking and adding new elements where he thinks they should fit. With a mixture of vinyl crackle, old recordings of melodramatic strings, and a panoply of noisy textures all filtered through electronic flecks of grainy quadruplications, you’re transported to some fractionalized cosmic radio broadcast that still retains a near seamless coherence of a logical compositional strategy. Philip Jeck speaks about his work followed by a question and answer session. Also, I’m including an audio recording of his performance in Linz done on the following evening. The LP, Suite: Live in Liverpool, is available from Touch.
