Ocean Of Sound by David Toop Aether Talk, Ambient Sound and Imaginary Worlds

    Serpent's Tail

    Sun Ra, Brian Eno, Lee Perry, Kate Bush, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Brian Wilson are interviewed in this extraordinary work of sonic history that travels from the rainforests of amazonas to virtual Las Vegas, from David Lynch's dream house, high in the Hollywood hills, to the megalopolis of Tokyo. "Ocean of Sound" begins in 1889 at the Paris Exposition when Debussy first heard Javanese music performed. It goes on to comprehensively map a whole century of ambient music and its legacy.
