David Sylvian - Live Japan 2004

Stunning performance from Sylvian and associated musicians. I've really enjoyed his more electronic outings of recent times (well 10 years or more) and parts of this gig highlight them fantastically. 
He gets some sweet sounds from that Nord Synthesizer. This concert reminds me of the more subdued outings by Coil, under their Timemachines guise.

Albums by David Sylvian I highly recommend...

Died In The Wool (Manafon Variations)
Plight And Premonition (with Holger Czukay)
Secrets Of The Beehive (more acoustic in nature)

Great compilation called Camphor covers most bases of his earlier career.
