Marc Weidenbaum - 33 1/3 Series 090: Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works Volume II

144-page book in English by Marc Weidenbaum about Richard D. James' classic album. Selected Ambient Works Volume II was intentionally functional: it furnished chill out rooms, the sanctuaries amid intense raves. Choreographers and film directors began to employ it to their own ends, and in the intervening decades this background music came to the fore, adapted by classical composers who reverse-engineered its fragile textures for performance on acoustic instruments.
