David Toop: A map of 21st century sound

As a theorist of ambient music, celebrated composer, musician and writer David Toop has been compared to Brian Eno.

Part personal memoir, part travel journal, Toop's latest book Haunted Weather: Music, Silence and Memory looks at what constitutes music following the digital revolution.

Visit David's publisher to find out more about his book Can computers replace traditional instruments? What impact do they have on the nature of improvisation and performance? How does sound - and silence - acquire meaning in the 21st century? Will our cult of listening to everything destroy our enjoyment of listening to anything?

Joining Toop to discuss these issues tonight are artist and record producer David Cunningham and Rob Young of The Wire magazine.
