Bish Bosch: Ambisymphonic: A Project by Scott Walker, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard presents the first scholarly analysis of Scott Walker's work, and is the first book to be published with the musician's permission. The publication will critically examine Walker's uncompromising, avant-garde "trilogy", which begain with Tilt in 1995, continued with The Drift 11 years later, and concluded in 2012 with his longest studio album to date, Bish Bosch.

In 2013, Walker teamed up with british mixed-media artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard to create Bish Bosch: Ambisymphonic, an utterly unique and immersive sonic re-imagining of the groundbreaking album. The book featues a rare interview conducted with Scott Walker by Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard on the making of the installation, together with fragments of the Bish Bosch score, the complete spatialisation script, rare never-before-seen pictures and notebook pages, and Walker's handwritten lyrics, made available by the musician himself. In addition, several binaural mixes of the ambisonic arrangements of the tracks featured in the installation will be included as a digital download.

The Wire's Rob Young and curator and writer Christopher Scoates will succinctly place Walker's work within the history of sound art and the larger context of experimental music, while a roster of Walker's collaborators, including Jarvis Cocker, provide an insight into the working practices of this most reclusive of musicians.
