How Music Works (Enhanced Edition)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In this enhanced edition of David Byrne's magnum opus on music, readers can listen to audio samples from over 50 pieces of music that enhance the text. This edition is also illustrated with high-resolution colour and black and white illustrations throughout.  

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

Equal parts historian and anthropologist, raconteur and social scientist,  Byrne draws 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 - to show  that music-making is not just the act of a solitary composer in a  studio, but rather a logical, populist, and beautiful result of cultural  circumstance.

A brainy, irresistible adventure, How Music Works is an impassioned argument about music's liberating, life-affirming power.
