David Byrne

How Music Works

In his latest book since the best-selling Bicycle Diaries, David Byrne takes on the role of musical historian and anthropologist as he dissects how, exactly, music has been shaped through time and place. Ranging in scope from Wagnerian opera houses to African villages to birdsongs in San Francisco, Byrne's How Music Works is a guided tour of the business, physics and joys of music. One of the most brilliant artists of our time, Byrne's writing, honed from a life of musical experience, will be remembered as one of the most enlightening books on the subject in a long, long time.
