“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” - The Bible, John I:V
Gong choirs, ragged system violins, rusted electronics, liquid heave resonances, apocalyptic poetry,
high-contrast photography: ‘The Infinite And The Unknowable’ is a visceral attempt to explore the
fathomless mysteries of the divine. Using a mythical Ballardian sea voyage at its core, it evokes
such diverse sources as Andrei Tarkovsky, Arvo Pärt, Tim Hecker, ‘A Book of Silence’, John Luther Adams,
Terrence Malick, ‘Under the Skin’, Jon Hassell, ‘Selected Ambient Works, Vol. II’, Laurie Spiegel, Ansel Adams, Richard
Skelton, the books of Revelation, Job and Daniel, Swans, John Sheppard and Hieronymus Bosch.
TIATU was painstakingly constructed over a six year period from hundreds of layers of played and
heavily processed electric violin, percussion and electronics and it includes the final re-worked
version of the title track originally used in the devastating closing scenes of the Film 4 / BFI / STUDIOCANAL
feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’. The voice of this instrumental music has been extended by the accompanying
debut collection of poetry and photography.
