After reading through our series on rooms and tuning, my son Scott suggested I watch a video by Talking Heads leader David Byrne on how architecture changed music.
This talk, available on the wonderful TED Series, is an extraordinary piece of information and I was pleasantly surprised at what I learned.
If you have a moment give it a look. I think you’ll enjoy his ideas about how music evolved into its present form from Bach, Mahler, Mozart, Wagner to modern Stadium rock, it turns out the architecture of the rooms and the environment plays a significant role in what composers write and musicians play. I certainly learned a lot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se8kcnU-uZw
