Really wonderful survey of "ambient," expanded to include jimi hendrix, rahsaan roland kirk, kate bush, etc. More to do with world-building than rock and roll. Hippie but not hokey. "There is talk of the object of the future as something evanescent, light, psychic; of immaterial objects akin to images or holograms." // "Transient non-articulated feelings... 'The Poetics of Space,' whether the ambience of a room, the ribbon of road, or the boundless envelopment of oceanic space." (!!) LOVELY, moody, ambling! Recommended for fans of RENEE.… (mer)

See review for Haunted Music. Same, same.

The post-Cage dictatorship gets old. I like Toop's approach, but the constant search for analogies to the thing (music) gets a bit tedious. Music has its own language, and can be analyzed by it. Toop is either ignorant of theory or he just thinks it's no longer relevant; either way, this is more like sociology than music studies.

Toop writes like the music he loves; ethereal, synthetic, atmospheric, even poetic. Toop embraces the multiplicity as the new one-ness, but the result is a lack of signposts. This lack of verticality can create a kind of desert space, as the immanent is reduced to a sameness of value. Bland? Maybe, but the potential for new styles is, at this very moment, quite tremendous. A scary, but exciting book.
