David Toop Ocean of Sound

In the Ocean of Sound David Toop takes us on a journey through the expanding language of music and sound in the 20th century. Taking Debussy’s encounter of Gamelan music as a point of departure towards the new realms of sonic creation and perception, Toop finds a way to draw a common line between such a diverse array of artists and composers as Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, The Orb, Mixmaster Morris, Jon Hassell, Harold Budd, Scanner, Paul Schütze, Pauline Oliveros, Thomas Köner, John Cage, Luigi Russolo, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Terry Riley, Derek Bailey, R. Murray Schafer, John Oswald, and more. Encompassing everything from postmodern philosophical ideas, autobiographical anecdotes, as well as interview excerpts with musicians, Toop truly provides a vast overview of the trajectories music has taken in the last century, as well as their meaning and implications on our culture.
