The Sinequanon

Andrew D. Iraci
sinequanon (pronounced "seenay kwaa non") without which it could not be;
without which there is nothing; an indispensable and essential condition.
This is the music of Alexander Knaifel (In Air Clean and Unseen). He is a contemporary composer from Uzbekistan.

I don't pretend, in a way, to understand,
nor know you,
nor even see you.

I say,
"I don't grasp his philosophy,
and I don't understand."

but I put out a hand, touch a cold door,
(we have both come so far);
I touch something imperishable;
I think,
why should he stay there?
why should he guard a shrine so alone,
so apart
on a path that leads nowhere?

"The Poet"
"How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it, why was I not informed
of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought from
a paddling shanghaier of human beings. How did I get involved in this big enterprise
called actuality?  Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am
compelled to be involved, where is the manager—I have something to say about this.  
Is there a manager?” ~Kierkegaard
