David Sylvian

Manafon (2022 reissue)


180g 2lp

Released: 21st Oct 2022


David Sylvian describes his 2nd solo album for his own Samadhisound label as being: “A modern kind of chamber music; Intimate, dynamic, emotive, democratic, economical”.

Recorded in London, Vienna and Tokyo, the 8 songs and 1 instrumental on ‘Manafon’ bring together “the world’s leading improvisors, and innovators, artists who explore free improvisation, space-specific performance and live electronics” including Evan Parker, Keith Rowe, Christian Fennesz, Sachiko M, Otomo Yoshihide, John Tilbury and members of Polwechsel. This is the first time on 180gram vinyl for this 2LP set.
