This site aims to take you to all things David Sylvian and Japan


David Sylvian is a long way from the post-punk / new romantic era of his Japan days and his music has gone through artistic changes which most musicians would never have the confidence (or talent) to consider.  He is now recognised as an enigmatic artist who embraces the world of music, poetry and visual art.  Sylvian's music can be atmospheric, melodic, haunting or uplifting. 

A loyal collection of fans have followed and appreciated his diverse work over the years - throughout Europe, in America and in Japan he is still in great demand from those who tire of an era of disposable pop.  His carefully crafted songs, his ability to mix acoustic instruments with electronica, his atmospheric vocal style (and it is his voice which so many people most appreciate) are all components of the complicated equation that is David Sylvian.
