DavidByrne.com - How Music Works

Thu, 06/26/2014 - 12:26 -- rprice

How Music Works is David Byrne's remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he's spent a lifetime thinking about. He explains how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and how the advent of recording technology forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to music. Acting as historian and anthropologist, raconteur and social scientist, he searches for patterns—and tells us how they have affected his own work over the years with Talking Heads and his many collaborators.

"Add even a reasonable distribution fee and the [profit] margin is best viewed through a microscope." In the small-press world, authors take the reins of marketing, a process that relies heavily on local connections.
