Publisher Comments:

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.

A musical travel diary, from the author of the landmark book on music Ocean of Sound.
