David Byrne: How Architecture Helped Music Evolve

Here’s a music TEDtalk after the last few which were not related to music much.

Byrne, a musician who came into the international spotlight around the 1980s as the vocalist/guitarist for rock band Talking Heads, has performed at many venues. In the short lecture, he talks about his thoughts on how space and acoustics of architecture has influenced music throughout history. He also ties in a reference to Attenborough’s nature shows, where birds also change their songs depending on environment as well. (I can link later to an NPR talk about how the same species of birds will change their song when moved from a rural setting to an urban setting. Check back for that!)
