philip jeck's weapons of choice are old turntables and old vinyl records. even though this statement suggests he's a dj, this conclusion cannot be further from the truth. he actually does play turntables and records as musical instruments, sampling, looping, speeding up/slowing down records to a degree, where the source material is likely to become unidentifiable. what he does has nothing to do with tracks and breaks, it's all about sound and texture, or even: the aura of the recordings.
"philip jeck in performance was recorded on 6th september 2011 at the brücknerhaus, linz, austria for prix ars electronica. the multi-channel recording (2 channels off the desk, two in the room) was mixed for touchradio by bjnilsen.”
