      April 13: THIS IS A ONE OFF. It's one that went wrong at the production stage! Or it could be a test copy to see how this book would look. I'm not sure. The book isn't central with a margin at the bottom of the book and on a couple of pages the printer's test black & white colours (I think they'll called) at the bottom. so for example the tracing paper inside has the image and the margin at the bottom. The binding is mostly not there so the front cover is coming away. Very fragile, like an old lost Holy manuscript. Has all the lyrics & poems from 'every colour you are' to 'gone from the landscape'.

      Please look at as many of the scans below as possible before making an offer.

      When Loud Weather Buffeted Naoshima

      CD Album

      2007. Limited Edition

      Recorded to be part of an art installation in the titular island's major gallery to whet more adventurous fans' appetites. For those who found Sylvian's project with Fennesz and Derek Bailey, Blemish, a little challenging may be well advised to stop reading now. When Loud Weather definitely sits in the box marked 'left field'.

      Conceived as a work in progress to be completed by the external sounds of the actual Chichu Art Gallery, When Loud Weather is a collage of found sound, drones and contributions from a ensemble of big-hitters in the European avant fraternity including shakuhachi maestro, Clive Bell, guitarist Christian Fennesz and Norwegian trumpet/electronics genius, Arve Henriksen.

      Moving between snatched conversation, tape hiss, meteorological ambience and the contributions of the above players, Sylvian hoped to create a 'multiple exposure' of the spiritual and emotional life of this ancient island where old and new exist cheek-by-jowl. The various sounds of the island are mixed into the original recording to give one a sense of how it must have sounded in situ.

      A formal discussion of something so nebulous can only result in empty conjecture. But with such a stellar cast Sylvian's on safe ground anyway. All of the players involved have been responsible for some of the most beautiful music of the last few years. Not least Henriksen, whose angelic vocal chords are here used to stunning effect.

      This isn't as such one of Sylvian's major works, but it shows how far the man has come in recent years and how carefully and wisely he's choosing his fellow travellers. Never less than beautiful, When Loud Weather... deserves to given space next to his more mainstream work -- Chris Jones, BBC
