by Aaron Britt This TED talk that David Byrne gave last year is such a wonderful walk through the history of music, and how the architecture in which that music was performed helped shape it, that I had to post it today. Not only does Byrne ably tease out why a Wagnerian concert hall is better suited to Wagner than say an MP3 player, or a riverboat, or your car, he takes us on a tour of why many shifts in music seem as tied to their points of performance as any larger artistic evolution.
