Not Knowing originally took shape as a shorter sketch released as part of the Ante Algo Azul series in 2011. After much deliberation between 2010 and 2013, the version presented here is as close to finished as I could reach. The piece was formed as a direct response to the haven not sought but found in Eliane Radigue’s music. In particular, L’Île Re-Sonante helped me get through a necessarily rough patch of what we tend to call life.
I am indebted to Michael Vitrano for liking the music enough to see this release through. The cover image is from painter Elizabeth Huey’s found photo collection. Layout and design were done by Chris Koelle and J. Aaron Greene. A special thank you is reserved for Emmanuel Holterbach, and, as always, I thank you for listening.
I was immediately stunned by how ahead of time this record was when it came out. That John Fahey originally released it on his Takoma label was reason enough for me to check it out. Nicholas Szczepanik
