Tune in and turn up
David Byrne Book

We had a peek into his New York office last week, now to take a look into…his MIND. Talking Head’s David Byrne is set to publish How Music Works. Byrne, rather like collaborator Brian Eno, is a man who both makes music and, across the duration of his career, has investigated the whys and hows behind its effects on the listener.

He explains – “The universe of music follows broad and basic evolutionary patterns-as does birdsong, to take one example….What we hear is determined by what we want to hear, by what can be heard, and by the circumstances that allow it to come into being.” Byrne will be touring the U.S to discuss the book and to perform, dates here.

Find a copy of How Music Works at Amazon.
