Anmeldelser

«How Music Works is not just a noticeably handsome book but a beguiling and hugely perceptive one too»

Jonathan O’Brien, * Sunday Business Post *

«Creators of all stripes will find much to inspire them in Mr Byrne's erudite musings on the biological and mathematical underpinnings of sound. . . His observations on the nature of pattern and repetition, and on people's neurological response to aesthetic experience, apply to all creative fields»

* The Economist *

«As accessible as pop yet able to posit deep and startlingly original thoughts and discoveries in almost every paragraph . . . this book will make you hear music in a different way»

Oliver Keens, * The Sunday Telegraph *

«A very involving read - Byrne is good company - he has a gift for a telling analogy that makes complex points easily grasped»

Keith Bruce, * The Herald *

«How Music Works is a melange of bookish musings on how music is shaped by the places it is played and the technology used to create and disseminate it»

Danny Eccleston, * MOJO *

«An entertaining and erudite book . . . this is a serious, straight-forward account of an art from that also manages to be inspiring»

Peter Aspden, * Financial Times *

«Given the vastness of the subject, calling a treatise How Music Works seems intellectually arrogant, but it could also be seen as disarmingly frank, a fresh perspective from a down-to-earth mind. David Byrne's book, although a self-conscious art object (backwards pagination, upholstered cover and so on) contains plenty of plain-spoken, sensible observations: a dichotomy typical of the man»

* Guardian *

«Incisive and intriguing»

Nick Curtis, * The Evening Standard *

«It's a great book to pick up and start at any chapter, a hugely rewarding and enriching read. A fascinating look at music from many angles, I would receommend it to anyone who plays or simply has an interest in the history and evolution of the musical form, the culture of music, both as a well of inspiration and as a simple commodity»

* Irish Times *

«By investigating how music works, Byrne shows us how best it can be used. We are all the richer for his effort»

Yo Zushi, * New Statesman *

«Fascinating look at music's power to move»

Alexis Petridis, * The Guardian *

«A big beautiful work of art. . . As you might expect from someone as intelligent and open-minded as Byrne, How Music Works is a far ranging and astute look at all the facets of music»

Doug Johnstone, * The Big Issue *

«The finest music book of the year . . . Handsomely bound, beautifully printed, wittily illustrated, it would make a beautiful collector's item but there is much more going on between the covers . . . bursting with a sense of free-flowing curiosity»

Neil McCormick, * The Daily Telegraph *

«It was wildly ambitious to try and turn this galaxy of theory into a readable work of scholarship but Byrne has done it, and done it with style. Brian Eno might as well cancel that book deal now»

Mark Ellen, * The Observer *

«Brilliantly original»

* New York Times Book Review *

«As well as being an investigation into the context in which music is made, How Music Works is an accomplished celebration of an ever-evolving art form that can alter how we look at ourselves and the world»

Fiona Sturges, * Independent *

«An ambitious attempt at understanding a phenomenon to which the former Talking Head has dedicated his life's work»

John Doran, * Quietus *

«Byrne is a crisp and enthusiastic guide»

Rob Fitzpatrick, * The Sunday Times *

«[A] wide-ranging tome»

Geeta Daval, * Wired Magazine *

«A fluid, intelligent analysis»

Patrick Freyne, * The Irish Times *
