Soaked by Philip Jeck and Jacob Kirkegaard - Touch [TONE15] FLAC download included with physical items


A 7 track avant-garde album (35m 18s) — released September 30th 2002 on Touch

This recording is taken from their live performance at the Moers Jazz Festival, Germany, in May 2002 'There are grains of truth in the suggestion that, in moving, you may find yourself in or out of some one's favour. But, listen to the slow, delicate, even introspective background: some breeze, some chimes, some distant thunder as each focal point remains a lament.' This blistering work was recorded live at the Moers Jazz Festival, Germany, in May 2002 and follows hot on the heels of Philip Jeck's highly acclaimed 'Stoke' [Touch # TO:56, 2002], about which The Wire said 'Philip Jeck has always been good, but Stoke makes him great? and Side-Line wrote: 'an essential record for the lovers of meaningful experimental and ambient stuff!'. Jacob Kirkegaard is a member of Danish combo Aeter who work in a mixed media context. He was born in Denmark, 1975 and is currently studying at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. Germany. He has taken part in numerous festivals throughout Europe, playing live, improvising with samplers and other electronics, as he does on this recording .

"like a rainy night-time train ride where you are lulled into straboscopic sem-consciousness by the warmth, sounds and motion, and half-formed images flit thorugh your mind with a confused dream logic. Its all very pleasant, in fact, until your senses are derailed by a noisy cresendo towards the end. *** - Muzik
