Product description


Puts Toop up there with Eno as a theorist of ambient music (Wired)

It is the capacity of sound to thrill the senses that comes across most clearly in these pages (Independent on Sunday)


In 1889 Debussy first heard Javanese music at the Paris Exposition, and it is here that this history of ambient music starts, looking at Sun Ra, Brian Eno, Lee Perry and other musicians; and ranging from the Amazon rain forests to David Lynch's dream house.
