And quite frankly, it feels real nice to have a book queue. You should start one today. Books are practically the only things I collect, aside from vintage musical gear and a couple old film cameras. But, space is getting more and more limited and AU's + VST's are getting so good, that soon, I won't be needing that Roland AP-7's (the one that works 40% of the time) or the TB-3's, or the Juno's or even the Nordleads anymore. Well, the Nord is not quite that old.
Irregardless, start reading again. Throw away the futurist opinion that my "too smart for his own good" computer scientist friend "C" has; that books are obsolete tech. We will all benefit collectively from your curiosity.
And as far as the book, David's insights thus far have been mind opening. It's really the first theoretical music book I've picked up, even though he might be reluctant to classify it as such. And even though I've recorded and released records over the last few years, I never thought about the form as conceptually as say, filmmaking. It always seemed more instinctual. But, I welcome this new openness. And what better way to start then Byrne, while I track down Eno's, "Year with Swollen Appendices".
