How Music Works
How Music Works is David Byrneâ€™s buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. Drawing on his work over the years with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and myriad collaboratorsâ€”along with journeys to Wagnerian opera houses, African villages, and anywhere music existsâ€”Byrne shows how music emerges from cultural circumstance as much as individual creativity. It is his magnum opus, and an impassioned argument about musicâ€™s liberating, life-affirming power.
