You're welcome Anon. I borrowed a friends copy to read years ago and I seem to remember it being a very good little read, must go get a copy again. If you like Ocean Of Sound then I reccomend checking out 'The Ambient Century' by Mark Prendergast. It's a much larger and in depth view of the subject and is Published by Bloomsbury in the UK.

Well enjoy the book and soundtrack :-)

Thank you so much for the two David Toop compilations. I read the book a very long time ago but was never able to find the cds. Thanks again! If you do come across the other two comps, please let me know.

Bugger/ pipped to the post!
I was just about to put 'Ocean' up at "Pathway To Unknown Worlds" when I came across yr post. Oh well...and many thanx for 'Venus' (can I also put up my hand for the other vols, if you get 'em!)
Would you mind if I posted a link to these @ Pathway? Was also going to put up a link to d/load the book as a PDF!

Should I get the other two volumes I'll either do a post of them or at the very least leave links here in the comments.

@Mona - Thanks for asking and of course you may link to the post. I'm very interested in downloading a PDF of the book as I'd love to give it a second read so I'll keep an eye out at yours. Also adding "Pathway.." to the blog links here. Keep up the good work :-)

I have the third volume, and I could upload it @320kBit/s on rapidshare.

Teenage Riot said...
