David Byrne?s brainy, irresistible, and bestselling musical adventure?now in a handsome paperback edition How Music Works is David Byrne''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 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.
