The Talks interview

5 Nov, 2013

Byrne gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses how he writes songs differently, why he hasn’t made more movies, and his book about music.

I had done a couple of articles for magazines and newspapers and I realized that I was drawn to the idea of how the various contexts affect how music sounds. So I was interested in how music is molded by the acoustics of a space, by the economics, by the technology, and I thought, “Oh maybe I’ll write a whole book about all these different ways music is influenced from the outside, not from the inside.”
