Product description

Review

This is not just a book about the uncanny history of sound, but about the hidden affinities between eras and art forms. The patterns it divines make Sinister Resonance something like a sonically minded companion to Marina Warner's Phantasmagoria, on the haunted nature of photography and cinema. --The Wire, August 2010

It is, in my opinion, a work unmatched, a veritable sourcebook with innumerable points of departure, and overall a stunning achievement. --Bomb Magazine, Fall 2010

It s a vast, wonderfully partial map of sounds and silences that opens up grand vistas of extra-musical meaning, a virtuoso mediation on what we tend not to hear rather than what we blithely assume we do. --Filter Magazine

'This fourth in Toop's series of meditations turns out to be the most illuminating yet.' --The Independent on Sunday

It s a vast, wonderfully partial map of sounds and silences that opens up grand vistas of extra-musical meaning, a virtuoso mediation on what we tend not to hear rather than what we blithely assume we do. --Filter Magazine

'Scarily erudite but ultimately enthralling.' --guardian.co.uk

It s a vast, wonderfully partial map of sounds and silences that opens up grand vistas of extra-musical meaning, a virtuoso mediation on what we tend not to hear rather than what we blithely assume we do. --Filter Magazine
