HOW MUSIC WORKS by David Byrne

This interesting character David Byrne published a book this year with McSweeney's. It' out now in the UK and we also have it in our store.

How Music Works is David Byrne’s remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. In it he explores how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and he explains how the advent of recording technology in the twentieth century forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to music.

  1. This was a gift for my husband and he practically read the entire thing to me. I will read it as soon as he finishes.
    He is enthusiastic about everything David Byrne has to say.
