Grönland Records has announced the reissue of David Sylvian’s and Holger Czukay’s collaborative albums Plight & Premonition and Flux & Mutability.
The pair met in the early-eighties while working on Sylvian’s debut solo album, Brilliant Trees.
Speaking about the albums which were originally released separately in 1988 and 1989, Sylvian explains that “the sessions touched on a form of music that seemed to have been created while we were absent by instruments abandoned to the earth and the woods, sounded by the coarse winter elements.”
All the recordings have been fully remastered. The packaging has been redesigned by Chris Bigg with Art Direction by Sylvian with new, previously unseen, photographs by Yuka Fujii, accompanied by an extensive essay by David Toop.
