Haunted Weather : Music, Silence, and Memory (2004) ISBN 1-85242-812-0 is a book by David Toop published by Serpent's Tail in July 2004. Its release was accompanied by a CD [1].

From the publisher:

Is it possible to grow electronic sounds, as if they were plants in a garden? Why are childhood memories of sound and silence so important to our emotional development? Is it valid to classify audio recordings of wind or electrical hum as musical compositions? Why have the sounds of our environment become so important to sound artists and why is atmosphere so important in music? In Haunted Weather, David Toop asks these questions and gauges the impact of new technology on contemporary music's sound.
