Exotica: Fabricated Soundscapes in a Real World
Merging anecdote and biography, autobiography and interviews, fact and fiction and a characteristically eclectic selection of music, David Toop spirals us through the 20th century?s guilty fascination with exotica. Notions of the exotic have long inspired musicians across the musical spectrum, from classical to ?easy listening? to rap - from Stravinsky to the Boo-Yah T.R.I.B.E. Exotica takes a look at some of the world?s most witty, experimental and adventurous sound recordings while taking in the work of Les Baxter, the meaning of Carmen Miranda, leopard skin leotards, pink fluffy cubicles, elevator music, and more... Painstakingly researched and brilliantly insightful, Exotica includes interviews with Burt Bacharach, Ornette Coleman, Bill Laswell, YMO?s Haroumi Hosono, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and The Boo-Yah Tribe.
