Dear ,

Join us as Rock ‘n Roll-Hall-of-Famer and co-founder of Talking Heads David Byrne sits down and talks with singer-songwriter-guitarist David Lowery about his latest book How Music Works.

Listen as Byrne explores how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and how the advent of recording technology in the last century forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to it.

Hear him discuss themes and patterns—how they have evolved over the years and affected his work.
