Origin of Camphor
Beautiful catalogue of the David Toop’s sound-art exhibition called Sonic Boom: The Art Of Sound at the Hayward Gallery in London (April 27 – Juni 18, 2000).
David Sylvian made a contribution to the so-called Decompression Tunnel, i.e. the entrance of the gallery. Here was a sound installation, where a piece was playing containing samples by David Sylvian (and e.g. Bill Nelson, Haruomi Hosono, Yoshihiro Hanno)
A note at the entrance and this catalogue is crediting David for his contribution. Unfortunately, the 2 CD set that comes with the catalogue (with works by e.g. Russell Mills, PanSonic, Ryoii Ikeda, Paul Schuetze and Brian Eno) is not containing this track.
However, the contribution of David to this Decompression Tunnel score is in fact the track that later became Camphor.
