Premonition 18: & Premonition is the first of two collaborative albums by English musician David Sylvian and German musician Holger Czukay. It was released in March 1988. Czukay had come to prominence in the 1960s with the experimental rock group Can, while Sylvian's had been the frontman of the UK new wave group Japan. The music on Plight is ambient, making extensive use of 'found sounds' from a variety of non-traditional sources. It consists of two instrumental tracks, both of which are over 15 minutes long.

David Sylvian & Holger Czukay - Mutability A New Beginning Is In The Offing. On Holger's invitation David spent a few nights working in Can studio with the legendary bass player which saw the production of this evocative album. Two long form, drone-based, instrumental compositions, this album has remained a firm favourite of David's. Originally released in March 1988 David produced a remix of the entire album as a bonus CD with the instrumental compilation 'Camphor'. When David Sylvian set about making his first solo album, 1984s Brilliant Trees, he enlisted a handful of former collaborators, including Yellow Magic Orchestra co-founder Ryuichi Sakamoto as well as his Japan bandmates Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri. The most crucial contributions, though, came from an artist with whom he had never worked before: Holger Czukay. Surprisingly, Sylvians interest in the German artists work derived not from the latters tenure in the pioneering krautrock band Can but from his solo albums, particularly his 1979 release Movies.

Disc 2 of 'Gone to Earth' showed that Sylvian was adept at instrumental ambient but this went further into territory almost uninhabited by conventional musical notions at least notions held by the majority of his 'Japan' era fans. The first piece is dark and dessicated, tension ebbs and flows, fragmentary and elusive. The second piece is warmer, less thr. Album 2018 4 Songs. David Sylvian & Holger Czukay. Electronic 2018.
