"David Toop is a musician, composer, writer and sound curator. He published three books: Rap Attack, Ocean of Sound and Exotica. He has also released five solo albums since 1995: (Screen Ceremonies, Pink Noir, Spirit World, Museum of Fruit and Hot Pants Idol). He worked with musicians such as Brian Eno, John Zorn, Prince Far I, Jon Hassell, Derrek Bailey, Talvin Singh, Evan Parker, Max Eastley, Scanner, Ivor Cutler and Witchman. 'I wanted to create atmospheres suggestive of buildings as living organisms, creatures with nervous systems, without reducing the soundtrack to a catalogue of sound effects. In his novel, High Rise, J.G. Ballard described the subtle relationship of an apartment block's nervous system to the disintegrating ecology of the mini-society of its inhabitants. Apartment blocks look much the same, whether in China or the suburbs of Paris, yet the lives within them are very different. The sounds of lift shafts, ventilation and heating systems, the murmurs of human activity, radio and television, have a universality that becomes specific only in the finest details, a moment in time at the right place, maybe through the walls of the 37th floor at sunset.' -- David Toop"
