David Byrne is Thinking About How Music Works

May 21, 2017

David Byrne is one of those artists who just keeps reinventing himself -- first as frontman of Talking Heads. Remember how he used to play concerts wearing that huge, oversized white suit? Then he made films and wrote books. Lately, he's been making historical musicals -- one about Joan of Arc and one about Imelda Marcos. He's also turned entire buildings into musical instruments. And he's just come out with an updated version of his book, "How Music Works," which includes a new chapter called "Infinite Choice: The Power of Curation."
