Soft sift

New music by the great Philip Jeck is so precious that the giveaway of a previously unreleased remix from Suite: Live in Liverpool has me scurrying to share it onwards. Gloopily then glitteringly ethereal, vast & thrillingly bass-y, the remix is one of two from the suite that together form a coda to Jeck's new An ark for the Listener ("a meditation on verse 33 of 'The Wreck of the Deutschland', Gerard Manley Hopkins' poem about the drowning on December 7th 1875 of five Franciscan nuns exiled from Germany. This CD version was recorded at home in Liverpool and used extracts from live performances over the last 12 months. All tracks were made using Fidelity record-players, Casio SK1 keyboards, Sony mini-disc recorders, Behringer mixers, Ibanez bass guitar, Boss delay pedal and Zoom bass effects pedal.")

Previous coverage (also here - post includes a glassy, tinkling rehearsal version of part of Ark, which might be related to its fourth track Dark Rehearsal. Or not...stream below, anyway).

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
