Tracks – by/with David Sylvian
Tracks by David, but also commissions etc.
Upon This Earth contains a reading of the Robert Graves poem The Foreboding which can be found in any selected edition of the poetry or in his collected poems (cassell p,95). The reading is by Robert himself and is taken from an album of his readings on a label called Argo, long since passed.
The difference between the regular vinyl-only Weathered Wall Instrumental and the promo version is that on the latter, the hi-hats are missing!! Therefore, this is an extremely exclusive and rare track.
A beautiful composition from David that was commissioned as an installation piece by the Naoshima Fukutake Art Museum Foundation on the island of Naoshima, Japan as part of the NAOSHIMA STANDARD 2 exhibition which ran from Oct 2006 to April 2007.
