Always have a thing for ambient guitar, very nice! A bit of piano with a lot of reverb and a bit of delay might fit.

Best,
Adi/Thedeadsoul

I think this has a similar vibe to some of the guitar tracks on David Sylvian's Gone to Earth album. That's one of my favourite '80s albums, so this is a good thing, imho. Great sounds and atmosphere.

Good work :)

Thanks so much! I haven’t heard Sylvian’s name since I was a teen and not familiar with his work... will check out. :)

I'm hearing Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew all over them but neither were on the first album and only Fripp was on Gone to Earth (which I already knew).
It's funny... as a teen, I was 99.99% prog, almost exclusively listened to Rush with a lot of Yes thrown in. I knew of Fripp and Belew, respected them a ton but listened to them very little. Interestingly, though, seeds for ambient were planted back then because my guilty pleasure was U2 and f*cking adored The Unforgettable Fire (Eno and Lanois, of course...)

Fast forward to 2002, my band had already broken up, and I hear this song that's blowing my **MIND** in the other room on the TV (one of those satellite/cable music channels). It's a band called Porcupine Tree and became obsessed.

Which of course helped me to (re)connect with ambient and re-discover Fripp and Belew and just a boatload of post rock and drone and IDM and a bunch of other stuff too. And of course, posts like this remind me there are cats from my teens that I had totally forgotten about like Sylvian and Henry Kaiser that I need to reconnect with.

Gone to Earth is right up there in my little collection of David Sylvian CD's.

Brilliant Trees would probably be my top.
I think most of Sylvian's back catalogue from Brilliant Trees to Snow Borne Sorrow (Nine Horses) is worth repeated, frequent listening.

Just had a look who was doing guitar duties on Sylvian's first album (Brilliant Trees) and his third album (Gone to Earth).

I'm hearing Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew all over them but neither were on the first album and only Fripp was on Gone to Earth (which I already knew).
Phil Palmer, Fripp, Bill Nelson, B.J. Cole, David Torn, Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell, Derek Bailey are some of the guitarists that have featured on Sylvian's albums. Quite an impressive roll-call.
