The Bubbly Blue and Green is a four-day festival of eclectic “water music” influenced by shipwrecks, rivers, waves and lighthouses. Housed in the halls of Kings Place, the festival runs from the 24th to 27th February 2010 and features Philip Jeck and Hildur Guðnadóttir amongst others…
Touch artist Philip Jeck is an awarding winning turntablist feted for collaborations with the likes of Gavin Bryars. Using dusty vinyl records and processed Dansette record players the Liverpudlian conjures a galaxy of poignant, immersive textures – not least on An Ark for the Listener, a new work inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem The Wreck Of The Deutschland.
Promoters The Arctic Circle have uploaded “Ark Overture” to soundcloud.com – a rehearsal/work in progress of what to expect from Jeck at Kings Place.
In addition, they have interviewed Jeck for “The Bubbly Blue and Green – Day 1” podcast.
