How Music Works, Paperback Book

How Music Works Paperback



How Music Works is David Byrne's bestselling, buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about.

Drawing on his own work over the years with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and his myriad collaborators - along with journeys to Wagnerian opera houses, African villages, and anywhere music exists - Byrne shows how music emerges from cultural circumstance as much as individual creativity.

It is his magnum opus, and an impassioned argument about music's liberating, life-affirming power.
