Artist: David Sylvian
Album: When Loud Weather Buffeted Naoshima
Label: Samadhisound
Year: 2007

Designer: Art direction: David Sylvian, Yuka Fujii, design: Chris Bigg, artwork: Sachiyo Tsurumi
Type of music: Site-specific installation soundtrack
Notes: About to be released at time of writing, this is a rather gorgeous limited edition CD clothed in a horizontal DVD digipak. Drawings of bowls of feathers and clouds of bees (a lyrical touchstone for Sylvian) almost obscure photographs of water and coastline. I haven’t quite screwed up the courage to listen to the music yet – the prospect of an ensemble comprising Sylvian, Clive Bell, Christian Fennesz, Akira Rabelais and Arve Henriksen is such a mouth-watering prospect that I’m afraid of being disappointed!
