Three Rivers Press How Music Works

David Byrne
Okay, so original Talking Head David Byrne knows a lot about how music works — but this is for everyone, not just fellow musicians and audiophiles. With this book, he set out to explore the formal and sensory elements of music, the modern-day mechanisms of creation and consumption, as well as the transformative power of rhythm, tune, and song on the human experience. And given that The New York Times Book Review called it "brilliantly original" and The A.V. Club called it "dazzling," we'd say he accomplished his mission. This is a great addition to the bookshelves of diehard fans, tin ears, and anyone who's curious about, yes, how music works.
