Philip Jeck studied visual arts at Dartington College of Arts in the 1970’s and has been creating sound with record-players since the early 80’s. He has released 11 solo albums, including the most recent “Cardinal”, a double vinyl release on Touch and his 2008 record “Sand” which was second in The Wire’s top 50 albums of the year.
Philip also still works as a visual artist, usually incorporating sound and has shown installations at The Bluecoat, Liverpool, Hayward Gallery, London, The Hamburger Bahnhof Gallery, Berlin, ZKM in Karlsruhe and The Shanghai and Liverpool Bienalles. He won the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers 2009.
“…The impact Jeck makes with his limited means is hugely, billowingly poignant … it evokes a simultaneous sense of persistence and decay, both a profound sadness and a sense of joy.” – The Wire
