David Sylvian ∙ Holger Czukay - Flux + Mutability mp3 album
2. Mutability ("A New Beginning Is In The Offing"). Flute – Jaki LiebezeitGuitar, Keyboards – David SylvianMixed By – Sylvian, Czukay.
When David Sylvian set about making his first solo album, 1984’s 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, Sylvian’s interest in the German artist’s work derived not from the latter’s tenure in the pioneering krautrock band Can but from his solo albums, particularly his 1979 release Movies Where Czukay left his most lasting mark was as an improviser. Those qualities, and the two men’s friendship, kept their paths intersecting through the 1980s.
In the European ambient scene, they are fixtures. Flux + Mutability is an album with two long-form compositions. These pieces are deep, expansive atmospheres with eerie samples and vacuous walls of sound. The second piece features only guitars, keyboards, and an African flute.
Flux + Mutability is the second collaboration between David Sylvian and Holger Czukay. It was released in September 1989. The music consists of two instrumental tracks improvised by the participants. Flux (A Big, Bright, Colourful World)" (Sylvian, Czukay) – 16:56. Mutability (A New Beginning Is in the Offing)" (Sylvian, Czukay) – 20:59. Holger Czukay – electric guitar (1), bass guitar (1), dictaphone (1), radio (1), engineer. David Sylvian – guitar (1, 2), keyboard instruments (1, 2), art director.
It might have been a work from which the methodology of Holger Czukay had come out a little strongly though it was an album of the joint work in "Plight&Premonition". The secret element might have given a little difficult part for the listener as an impression. However, wavelength each other was indeed reflected in the work. And, the width of the methodology that they should express is expanded further and it has coming in succession of the sound and the calculated flow in this album.

Czukay had invited the singer to Can's old studio for the recordings that would become his solo album Rome Remains Rome (Virgin, 1987).
