David Byrne maintains regular communications with friends and fans through his e-mail newsletter. He informed his extended audience today that he has written and published a new book, How Music Works. It will be available on September 12, 2012.
According to David Byrne: It examines how music is affected by a multitude of contexts—financial, technical, social, and architectural. There are personal anecdotes and pictures and some pie charts, as well.
David Byrne’s command of music’s sociological dimensions coupled with his role as a purveyor makes this book an irresistible journalism choice.
