The English sound artist will release his next album in September.
Since the early '80s, Jeck has used vintage turntables and old vinyl as source material for his electronic ambient pieces. His last album, Sand, was composed mostly of records he found in a donation bin, plus heavily affected keyboards and miscellaneous found sounds, including a loop of his stylus slipping into the run-out groove. According to Pitchfork, Jeck's new album is a meditation on a passage from "The Wreck of the Deutschland," a 19th century poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins. The album will see release on Touch, one of the UK's oldest indie labels.
