Ep 47 // DAVID BYRNE
Play • 1 hr 9 min

It’s no surprise that DAVID BYRNE enters the Zoom with a startling, silvery magnetism. With a mind as sharp as an encyclopedia but as free as the wind, BYRNE delves into the music and poetry that inspired him to re-imagine the Top 40, launching his iconoclastic career. As original as thinkers come, jumping into Byrne’s world pushes boundaries, questions structures, and does it all with BYRNIAN flare: perfectly synchronous with eclectically mesmerizing style. Amongst his inexhaustible influences and inspirations, he describes Gamelan music, the airy harmonies of Peter, Paul & Mary, and how the sensuous melodies and rhythms of Brazilian music move him with emotion. Don’t miss the chance to visit Byrne’s world, dance to his drum, you’ve found the place!
