Description


"Not just a deeply thoughtful and richly populated survey of modern experimental music, it's a meditation on hearing itself."--Guardian

Digital technology has changed the ways in which music is perceived, stored, distributed, mediated, and created. In the eye of the storm stands David Toop, shedding light on the most interesting music now being made, wherever he finds it. Haunted Weather is an intensive survey of recent developments in digital technology, sonic theory, and musical practice.
