Amplified Gesture, the deluxe edition of David Sylvian’s groundbreaking album Manafon, explores the journeys and philosophies of a select group of experimental musicians including Keith Rowe, Evan Parker, Eddie Prevost, Otomo Yoshihide, Toshimaru Nakamura and Christian Fennesz. It's an intimate, eloquent, captivating document of a thriving and endlessly renewable music scene.

Revised and re-visited, this DVD release features a new chapter, entitled ‘The Collective’, plus numerous extras including outtakes from interviews plus artist biographies. Also included on the disc is a short introductory film, written, directed and narrated by David Sylvian. ‘A Man of No Significance’ documents the journey and modus operandi of the Manafon recording sessions and the creative rationale for the production of the film.
