DAVID BYRNE: Writes About Music
David Byrne, whose last book was about bicycle riding, writes about music in the next one, which will be published on September 12th.
The former Talking Heads frontman says How Music Works "examines how music is affected by a multitude of contexts -- financial, technical, social, and architectural. There are personal anecdotes and pictures and some pie charts, as well." Byrne recommends the hardback edition over the E-book. He says, "The physical book is truly a lovely object, so if you like to touch things, this is your best option. It’s large and slightly squishy."
