American Utopia Tour

American Utopia Tour by David Byrne, Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, 21 November 2018 Barefoot and brilliant, Byrne presents new songs and reworked Talking Heads classics in an energetically choreographed fusion of Brazilian beats and industrial sensibility. Complex, layered rhythms meet vocal resplendence. Virtuoso musicians in motion! Top three songs: ‘Lazy’; ‘Born Under Punches’; ‘I Zimbra’.    

How Music Works

How Music Works by David Byrne (Canongate, 2012) As with The Bicycle Diaries, Byrne shows himself to be eloquent, thoughtful, erudite, and surprisingly scholarly in his quest for understanding; in this instance of the practical and philosophical underpinnings of (a career in) music. Talking Heads fans and wannabe musicians rejoice!
