    Personnel: David Sylvian (guitar, piano, harmonium, synthesizer, vibraphone); Holger Czukay (organ, samples); Karl Lippergaus (radio tuning); Jaki Lieberzeit. Recorded at Can Studio, Cologne, West Germany in 1986 & 1987.

    Though David Sylvian had explored ambient music previously, it was with PLIGHT & PREMONITION and its companion piece, FLUX & MUTABILITY, that he really embraced it. On these albums, both of which were collaborations with Holger Czukay (who, as a part of the band Can, had been charting some of the more avant-garde reaches of music for years), Sylvian began to address the idea of sound as scenery, a notion that subsequently became a defining characteristic of his career.

    font face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif" color="#FFFFFF" size="2"> PLIGHT's two expansive instrumental tracks feature only minimal suggestion that humans were even around when they were recorded. The first, Plight, is subtitled The Spiralling of Winter Ghosts and, as the title suggests, seems to exist in a non-corporeal realm of ominous tones where synthesized winds sweep across desolate planes--though there are faint echoes of radio broadcasts and a flute makes a brief appearance. The second track, Premonition, is an altogether warmer affair, lighting a path out of the deserted wilds--its piano even occasionally approaches jazz (but not too closely, mind).

    font face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif" color="#FFFFFF" size="2"> Though not for the casual fan, PLIGHT is the kind of record that must be accepted on its own terms, and as such is a rewarding experience.

    The cover is an extraordinarily ethereal photograph from Yuka Fujii.
