John Tilbury e Keith Rowe si misurano con gli intermittenti stimoli visivi e luminosi proposti dal videoartista norvegese Kjell Bjørgeengen sullo sfondo di alcune suggestioni letterarie remotamente desunte da Samuel Beckett. Lo fanno prendendosi tutto il tempo del mondo, e gli esiti - la sola parte audio - sono in un sontuoso box di quattro cd appena pubblicato dall'etichetta Sofa con il titolo Enough Still Not To Know.

Keith Rowe and John Tilbury are especially known from their work in the Scratch Orchestra and AMM with Cornelius Cardew. Tilbury is also known as one of the foremost interpreters of Morton Feldman's piano music. In recent years, both musicians have been working with texts by Samuel Beckett; Tilbury has made music and text-based performances of a number of the latest works by Beckett: Worsward Ho, Stirrings Still and What is the Word to mention a few. In Keith Rowe's work you can also find Beckett inspirations, where his music is totally stripped down, so that only the core remains. This influence, as well as Bjørgeengen's instructions about making a kind of music which musically and conceptually worked with dissolution and unification, combined with long sections of silence, has given surprising results. Sofa is very proud to be able to release this unique musical manifesto from these two legendary figures in experimental music.
