David Sylvian + Holger Czukay - Plight & Premonition mp3 album

Plight & Premonition is the first of two collaborative albums by David Sylvian and Can bassist Holger Czukay. It was released in March 1988. The music is ambient, making extensive use of 'found sounds'. It consists of two instrumental tracks, both of which are over 15 minutes long. The album peaked at n. 1 in the UK albums chart. The tracks were later remixed by Sylvian and issued on a limited bonus disc with his 2002 compilation albm Camphor.

Mixed By – David Sylvian (tracks: B), Holger Czukay. Piano, Other, Orchestrated By – Holger Czukay. Producer – Holger Czukay. Technician – Holger Czukay (tracks: A). Notes.

On Holger's invitation David spent a few nights working in Can studio with the legendary bass player which saw the production of this evocative album. Two long form, drone-based, instrumental compositions, this album has remained a firm favourite of David's. Originally released in March 1988 David produced a remix of the entire album as a bonus CD with the instrumental compilation 'Camphor'.

Czukay had invited the singer to Can's old studio for the recordings that would become his solo album Rome Remains Rome (Virgin, 1987). Sylvian didn't appear on the album in the end, but at least it set their collaboration in motion

David Sylvian + Holger Czukay ?Plight & Premonition (CD, Mar-1988, Virgin). In retrospect the album plays better as an unbroken composition, with the tentative "Plight" (mostly assembled by Czukay in his home studio laboratory) blossoming into the even more lovely "Premonition", the latter actually recorded live without overdubs. Heard together, the two halves complete a single piece of music sounding as natural and sustaining (and as easy to ignore) as the pulse of blood moving through your heart at this exact moment.
