New Book from Talking Head David Byrne Explores ‘How Music Works’

October 4, 2012

Post-punk pioneer and musical chameleon David Byrne has released a mountain of musical material of all types in his nearly four-decades-long career. His new book, How Music Works, tackle many of the themes that have come up in his work in the past – the future, the human brain and science, and the strange workings of music and emotion. He also focuses bluntly on the future of music business. Byrne is currently on tour with indie trailblazer St. Vincent supporting their new collaborative album, Love This Giant, with select dates featuring academic discussions centering on issues brought up in the book.
