He started working with record players and electronics in the early ‘80’s and has made soundtracks and toured with many dance and theatre companies as we as well as his solo concert work. His best kown work „Vinyl Requiem“ (with Lol Sargent): a performance for 180 ’50s/’60s record players won Time Out Performance Award for 1993. He has recently created „Vinyl Codas I-IV“ for Bavarian Radio, „Coda II“ winning a Karl Sczuka prize for Radio Art. He has also over the last few years returned to visual art making installations using from 6 to 80 record players including „Off The Record“ for Sonic Boom at The Hayward Gallery, London. Philip Jeck works with old records and record players salvaged from junk shops and uses them for his own purposes. He plays them as musical instruments, creating a personal language that evolves with each added part of a record. The resultant music is moving and transfixing, in which one hears the art not the gimmick. « hide
