Tracks & Poems
A previously unreleased work made for ‘David Sylvian’s Room’ by Sylvian was featured at the Born Creative Festival in 2019, titled ‘Manafon: questionable fidelity (the instrumental edition)’. The piece is c. 50 minutes duration.
Suddenly on September 22nd 2017, this track appeared on David’s (new) account on SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/user-516495290/beautiful-country-rough-mix). One day later, it was removed. Beautiful track by David Sylvian featuring Joan Wasser, Parker Kindred, and Fred Cash. Music and Lyrics by David Sylvian
The track includes the poem ‘And This I Dreamt, And This I Dream’ by Arseny Tarkovsky from the bundle ‘Life, Life’. David Sylvian’s spoken word vocal was originally recorded ahead of Ryuichi’s appearance in the ‘Concert for Japan’. Another recording was used at that concert, so this reading appears here for the first time.
