Vista blog

Postby silentwings on Sun Jun 03, 2018 5:55 am

In case folk are interested and haven’t seen mention elsewhere, this is to let people know about my recently launched blog inspired by David Sylvian and his collaborators - Vista.

David’s music has always reached me like no other, and I’ve harboured thoughts of writing about it for some time. In recent years I’ve enjoyed exploring the work of the many musicians I’ve been introduced to through David’s work. With more time now, I have the opportunity to bring these two strands together in the blog. These are just the thoughts of a non-musician fan - I hope people might find them of interest and that the posts perhaps prompt a listen to a track you haven’t played for a while, or an exploration of an unheard piece from one of the collaborators.

I’m aiming for fortnightly posts. It’s been great to see how many people have visited the site since launch - from all over the world - and to know that there are others who really appreciate this music too.

You can find the blog at http://www.sylvianvista.com.

Thanks Foales Arishes! I really appreciate the feedback.

I’m eager also to hear others’ views on these tracks. The blog is just one person’s perspective.
