David Sylvian  - Camphor (2002) (2xCD. Limited Edtion)

2002 compilation of instrumental tracks from the former lead singer of Japan and Rain Tree Crow. 'Wave', 'Plight' nand 'Upon This Earth' were all newly remixed by Sylvian. 'Red Earth', 'New Moon At Deer Wallow' and 'Big Wheels In Shanty Town' were originally recorded by Rain Tree Crow.
Limited Edtion 2002 Compilation of Instrumental Tracks from the Former Lead Singer of Japan and Rain Tree Crow. Camphor showcases the instrumental side of David Sylvian's oeuvre, being a compilation of various instrumental directions from 1986 to 2000 (when he parted company with Virgin) As with all compilations, there are many tracks left off, fans will have the majority of tracks here & the various stand-alone albums (Plight&Premonition, Alchemy, Flux&Mutability, Approaching Silence, the second disc of Gone to Earth etc) all work completely…but Camphor does hold together well and showcases Sylvian's ambient-credentials.

At last, the definitive biography of David Sylvian is available. This book — which has taken 3 years to complete — tracks the period of Sylvian’s solo career from 1982 to 2015. As well as being one of popular music’s most innovative and influential composers, Sylvian is an enigmatic and complex man, and the musical, personal, and spiritual journey he has undertaken over the last three decades is profoundly fascinating. The book begins as Japan — the band that Sylvian fronted in the late 1970s and early 1980s — broke up. As Sylvian embarked on his solo career, few would have appreciated the extent to which innovation and improvisation would become the central focus of his work.

A number of the tracks have been given a subtle remix by David to bring them in line with his personal requirements while others have been given more obvious updates and changes. All the material has been completely remastered. Like everything else he does, musical iconoclast David Sylvian's idea of a retrospective compilation is very different from the norm. Sleepwalkers is a 16-track, hour-plus collection focused on his many collaborations during the previous decade. Included are alternate takes from his own albums, remixes, reworked material and his contributions to the albums of others.

2009 album from the acclaimed British vocalist and former member of Japan. David Sylvian is a man apart. In a thirty-year career that spans the New Romantic movement, ambient works and Progressive Rock, and mature and esoteric Pop, Sylvian has tested popular styles and bent them to his own vision. On Manafon, Sylvian pursues "a completely modern kind of chamber music. Intimate, dynamic, emotive, democratic, economical." In sessions in London, Vienna, and Tokyo, Sylvian assembled the world's leading improvisers and innovators, artists who explore free improvisation, space-specific performance, and live electronics. From Evan Parker and Keith Rowe, to Fennesz and members of Polwechsel, to Sachiko M and Otomo Yoshihide, the musicians provide both a backdrop and a counterweight to his own vocal performances.

Streamlining the muted, organic atmospheres of the previous Gone to Earth to forge a more cohesive listening experience, Secrets of the Beehive is arguably David Sylvian's most accessible record, a delicate, jazz-inflected work boasting elegant string arrangements courtesy of Ryuichi Sakamoto. Impeccably produced by Steve Nye, the songs are stripped to their bare essentials, making judicious use of the synths, tape loops, and treated pianos which bring them to life; Sylvian's evocative vocals are instead front and center, rendering standouts like "The Boy With the Gun" and the near-hit "Orpheus" – both among the most conventional yet penetrating songs he's ever written – with soothing strength and assurance.

David Sylvian is a brilliant rock & roll guitarist and vocalist. He is also a great electronic minimalist. Sadly, he tries hard to do both together. Gone to Earth has moments of brilliant instrumental ambience with deep samples and misplaced vocals. The instrumental virtuosity grabs listeners immediately. Sylvian surrounds himself with some of the greats – Bill Nelson, Robert Fripp, and Mel Collins among them. The sound is dynamic and gentle at the same time.

With a well-received studio album in the form of The First Day issued in summer 1993, Sylvian/Fripp took to the road for a lengthy tour to support the release. Trey Gunn reprised his role from the earlier tour and studio recordings as stick player, while Pat Mastelotto joined the group on drums, a position which led to his being offered a role in the 1990s King Crimson, a band in which he has remained a member of every line-up since. Producer and recordings artist Michael Brook completed the touring ensemble.
