David Toop: Living Within Sound at Bates Mill Photographic Studio, 24 November 2019 Entrance is free

David Toop has done so many things worth talking about that this text will fail to mention. It’s useful, then, that he’s written a memoir. Flutter Echo: Living Within Sound chronicles the sound designer, composer and music theorist’s personal trails in music, providing a first-person account from one of the most imaginative minds in experimental music. At hcmf// 2019, Toop finds an inventive way to talk about himself, reading excerpts from his book and offsetting them with live musical interludes.
