How Music Works by David Byrne

How Music Works

by David Byrne Author

How Music Works is David Byrne’s vivid celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. Drawing on his years of work with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and a myriad of collaborators—along with journeys to Wagnerian opera houses, African villages, and anywhere music exists—Byrne shows how music emerges from cultural circumstance as much as individual creativity. It is his magnum opus, and an impassioned testament to music’s liberating, life-affirming power.
