A 12-track, 68-minute CD of instrumental music with a 48-page, softcover, 210 x 148mm book of 12 poems and 25 black and white photographs printed on 130gsm coated silk-finish paper with a 350gsm cover…
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 / Studio Canal feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’. The voice of this instrumental music has been extended by the accompanying debut collection of poetry and photography.
The CD features a fantastically detailed drawing from Bleeding Heart Narrative, folding out around the gatefold thick-card sleeve in a two colour print.
All copies come with a 12-panel foldout insert, and the 200 limited copies also include an extra two-colour numbered screenprint, and are also hand-numbered and sewn together.

The ‘Borderlands’ edition, Strange Weather, extends our northern focus to the far-flung reaches of the UK from the midlands to the borders and beyond, and will feature the same mix of in-depth critical writing, profiles, art and literary writing we established in Issue 1..
Named after a Hitchcock-esque nightmare in which he was set upon by a pair of hard-winged, marauding cuckoos, David A Jaycock’s second album is step forward from the pastoral motifs of his debut, incorporating an expansive country-folk sound alongside the indigenous qualities and general oddness that have made his name.
