CHIRP Music Book Club: How Music Works by David Byrne

RSVP to this event

Roscoe Books
2142 W Roscoe St.
Chicago
(773) 857-2676

Join CHIRP on Thursday, September 13th for the next installment of our bi-monthly book group, covering How Music Works by David Byrne.

"Most people know idiosyncratic, Scottish-born David Byrne as the front man of that great new wave band, Talking Heads. But he is also an author, painter, photographer, and film and record producer. In this wide-ranging celebration of the power of music, he discusses, among many topics, the early days of the recording industry, various types of music venues, birdsong and whale calls, the significance of mixtapes, the development of CDs, his love of African rhythms, and the concept of creativity and what it means to be creative. But he also mentions his own career as well as the many collaborators he has worked with, including English musician and producer Brian Eno, Brazilian composer and singer Caetano Veloso, and DJ Fatboy Slim. He describes the origin of his twitchy stage persona and acknowledges his own shyness, describing himself as “a withdrawn introvert,” whose most comfortable way of communicating was, he says, onstage. (“Poor Susan Boyle; I can identify,” he writes). At one point, he even self-diagnoses himself as having a mild form of Asperger’s syndrome. He concludes by asking provocative questions: What is music good for? Why do we need music? “Funding future creativity is a worthy investment,” he insists. Endlessly fascinating, insightful, and intelligent." --June Sawyers, Booklist

We'll meet at 7pm for a lively discussion with music & snacks.  For more information on upcoming books and meetings, visit roscoebooks.com
