David Sylvian & Holger Czukay - Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

  • Sale
  • Regular price £21.99

Reissue of two collaborations between "the most beautiful man in pop" of the late seventies / early eighties and Japan lead singer (David Sylvian) and former Stockhausen pupil and German experimental art band Can member (Holger Czukay). The albums both feature two full length tracks of ghostly and atmospheric sounds. Both titles are predicated on instability. Meanings are equally mutable, perhaps the beginning of a spiritual journey, a climate of uncertainty, the experience of improvisation, a door opening (that may quickly close again). That first nocturnal session in the Can studio began unconsciously, or at least without initial awareness that music was being made, Sylvian enjoying the opportunity to play a pump organ, then growing aware of a slippage in the room as Czukay played orchestral samples through the fold back system.
