Ocean of Sound begins in 1889 at the Paris Exposition when Debussy first heard Javanese music performed. It goes on to comprehensively map a whole century of ambient music and its legacy. Sun Ra, Brian Eno, Lee Perry, Kate Bush, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Brian Wilson are interviewed in this extraordinary history of sound that travels from the rainforests of the Amazonas to virtual Las Vegas, from David Lynch s dream house, high in the Hollywood Hills to the megalopolis of Tokyo.
