"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Friday's forcefield

LMYE recently shook the hand of modest genius. Having sat through a pretty woeful support act to deliver a fierce, deep masterclass in layering & reducing drones & scraps of found sound, Philip Jeck only allowed himself to thank someone for having helped him out with some forgotten leads. After that performance he'd have been entitled to punch the air, whoop & big himself up MC-style...

Pax (from Stoke) is nothing like last Friday's forcefield performance - but its woozy, hymnal beauty is worth your time anyway. 

Jeck's collaborations are also notable. The most obvious & lauded is with Gavin Bryars on The Sinking of the Titanic. But he's done good things with the Jah Wobble/Jaki Liebezeit post-everything drum 'n' bass pairing too, like Live in Leuven: from which, try Three.

Now bring on 'Jeck meets Pole' or 'Jeck meets Jelinek'!
