David Sylvian

Biography

After leaving experimental synth glam outfit Japan, David Sylvain began a sonic journey into the enchanting realm of ambient music to gain almost as much credibility in the field as Brian Eno. He teamed up with composer Ryuichi Sakamoto for his first solo single, "Bamboo Houses" before the two embarked upon scoring the film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. The success of their chemistry paved the way for an ongoing musical partnership.
