From the Publisher:
The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame-inducted co-founder of the Talking Heads presents a celebration of music that offers insight into the roles of time, place and recording technology, discussing how evolutionary patterns of adaptations and responses to cultural and physical contexts have influenced musical expression throughout history and culminated in the 20th century's transformative practices.
"This is a decidedly generous book--welcoming, informal, digressive, full of ideas and intelligence--and one has the pleasant sense that Byrne is speaking directly to the reader, sharing a few confidences he has picked up over the years." - Tim Page 09/23/2012 "HOW MUSIC WORKS is a faux-naïve guidebook (meaning he reduces complex phenomena to simple terms, though not always), written for the musically illiterate pop-music player and fan....[W]ide-ranging and thought-provoking....It is full of sharp, glancing insights. - John Rockwell 09/23/2012
