Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Employing intensified studies into World Music in relation to popular (as well as marginalized) contemporary trends, David Toop has created one of the most distinctive histories of modern music thinking for our times. Flutter Echo is his memoir of a life enchanted with all aspects of music both composed and abstract. In fascinating detail, Toop explores his personal growth as a practicing musician, visual artist, and witness to some of the most significant events in modern music history. From recording for Brian Eno's Obscure Records imprint in 1975 and co-publishing the radical music magazines Musics and Collusion to developing music programming for the BBC and releasing recordings he personally made of Yanomami Shaman rituals--from working with artists such as creative pop icon Bjork to Jamaican dub pioneer Prince Far-I--Toop has experienced one of the most interesting careers in the dynamic world of contemporary sound. Musician, listener, scholar, reporter, humanitarian, parent, iconoclast--David Toop brings his own life in music to focus in a remarkable, engaging read.

Includes discography (pages 202-206).
