David Sylvian - 'Answered Prayers' (Farbeak remix) by Farbeak published on 2010/06/01 11:26:44 +0000 Unauthorised remix of David Sylvians 'Answered Prayers' from the Gone to Earth album (1986). Created with Ableton Live in the spring of 2010. Instruments used: Fender acoustic bassguitar and Novation bassstation. Listen to the original here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv1snf4jTI8 Although I have enjoyed the music of Japan and David Sylvian since the mid eighties, I only heard 'Gone to Earth' for the first time in December 2009. Initially I thought it was a bit old and not relevant anymore, but soon it touched me and I played it a lot. Because of its beautifull sound 'Answered Payers' became one of my favorites. Later I felt that I could create a more earthly context for it. So I added a bassline and percussion and played some guitar on top of that. All parts were recorded around the first minute of the original. I enjoyed doing this remix and I'm happy with the result.
