Review

?Haunted Weather is not just a deeply thoughtful and richly populated survey of modern experimental music, it?s a meditation on hearing itself? Guardian ?One of Britain?s most celebrated writers on music? New Statesman ?Toop is up there with Eno as a theorist of ambient music? Wired ?The most interesting new music these days is being created on laptop computers and in downtown bars in Tokyo? Haunted Weather will look at the way people experience sound in the 21st century? Irish Times ?[Toop] has somehow managed to make the world of experimental music not just understandable but alluring for even the most virginal listener? this book is almost perfect? Independent on Sunday ?With Toop?s enthusiasm and accessible style, the world of the avant-garde needn?t seem like a closed club: Haunted Weather offers the perfect port of entry for the uninitiated? Record Collector ?A joy to read, whatever your musical taste? Buzz ?Toop is still light years ahead of a lot of the competition when it comes to documenting the often turbulent, but always fascinating world of contemporary sound exploration? Leeds Guide ?An unmissable, delightfully personal meander through the current sonic climate by esteemed writer/free musician Toop? Insight ?Toop rhapsodizes and roams widely, connecting his segments with quotes from novels, scientific treatises, personal anecdotes, and reflections on the famous tales of 20th century music? Signal to Noise

Synopsis

Digital technology has changed the ways in which music is perceived, stored, distributed, mediated and created. Contemporary sound work addresses memories, sensations and reactions directly, sometimes offering solutions or insights and sometimes making it all worse. Meanwhile, a torrent of CDs and MP3s floods over systems of marketing and distribution already on the point of collapse. Many of these changes seem too new, or too subtle, to understand fully, let alone explain. This title addresses these changes and asks questions about the ways in which technology is altering how music is performed, created and heard in the era of digital sound. This is not a book about using the Internet as a publicity or distribution tool, but a far more wide-ranging investigation into why we value sound, how we listen and how sound affects us at various levels of memory, physiology and environmental awareness.
