The second Search Ensembles artifact sees the return of Cédric Peyronnet (Toy Bizarre, Kaon / Ingeos, Sechres Mound,), Cyril Herry (Ninth Desert, Sechres Mound), Phil Legard (Xenis Emputae Travelling Band, Hawthonn), Michael Northam, Alan Courtis (Anla Courtis, Reynols), Jani Hirvonen (Uton), Slavek Kwi (Artificial Memory Trace), Jon Tulchin and Dale Lloyd (and/OAR, Seattle Phonographers Union, Lucid), plus first time involvement from Eric Lanzillotta (Eye Music, Ri Be Xibalba, Anomalous Records), Mark Reynolds and Mike Hallenbeck (Archive, Junior Birdman Audio).

Whereas the first album mostly presented unrefined aural snapshots of elusive and impenetrable civilizations and phenomena, the second album continues along similar lines with longer pieces while also presenting an increased utilization of electronic instruments and processes. The title is partially in reference to what were initially two different albums gradually becoming combined into one after a long process of being reworked and revised into one integrated whole. Furthermore, the title points toward a mental state of foretelling and recollection which in turn illustrates the idea that everything really exists in the eternal present (on an infinite number of time lines) rather than on one locked linear time line. Many indigenous people around the world have traditionally perceived life this way.

Limited to 150 copies. FEW COPIES REMAINING.
