AMM compatriots, pianist John Tilbury and guitarist/electronicist Keith Rowe release a 4-Cd set of music developed for an installation by visual artist Kjell Bjorgeengen, four subtle tracks using unconventional sound and silence to create unique sonic environments.
Rowe, Keith / John Tilbury
Enough Still Not to Know [4 CD BOX]
Released in: Norway
"Enough Still Not to Know is a four-CD box set with music by John Tilbury and Keith Rowe, produced by visual artist Kjell Bjorgeengen for a video installation. The music is improvised, but it is quite evident that the two artists have developed a strong understanding throughout their five-decade-long collaboration.
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 Beckett's latest works (including Worstward Ho (1983), Stirrings Still (1989), and What Is the Word (1989)), while Rowe's work draws inspiration from Beckett, where his music is totally stripped down so that only the core remains. This influence, as well as Bjorgeengen's instruction to make a kind of music that musically and conceptually works with dissolution and unification, combined with long sections of silence, has produced surprising results.
This unique musical manifesto from these two legendary figures in experimental music includes a booklet with liner notes written by Tilbury, Rowe, and Bjorgeengen."-SOFA
