Options March 3, 2012: David Toop: Slow Music - for Radio Boredcast

DAVID TOOP: SLOW MUSIC – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST

Slow music is only slow in a relative sense but there is a certain tempo, certainly slower than the norm, that has hypnotised me for more than 40 years. The body feels as if it runs at a certain pace but this is surely just a trick of perception – everything is moving according to different cycles, the most extreme of which contrast the passing now which has already gone with our infinitesimal place in the extendedness of the universe. I listen to this slow music (examples that have sustained me for almost a lifetime) in order to feel adjusted to the pace at which I feel most myself. (David Toop)

David Toop is a composer/musician, author and curator who has worked in many fields of sound art and music, including improvisation, sound installations, field recordings, pop music production, music for television, theatre and dance. He has published five books, including Ocean of Sound, Haunted Weather, and Sinister Resonance: The Mediumship of the Listener.
