Creation in Reverse – The Venue Makes the Music

David Byrne’s recent TED talk is available.

http://www.ted.com/talks/david_byrne_how_architecture_helped_music_evolve.html

Brief description:

My own talk was based on the idea that the acoustic properties of the clubs, theaters and concert halls where our music might get performed determines to a large extent the kind of music we write. We semi unconsciously create music that will be appropriate to the places in which it will most likely be heard. Put that way it sounds obvious…but most people are surprised that creativity might be steered and molded by such mundane forces…

We operate within similar constraints – email limitations, browser compatibility, mobile OS inconsistencies, etc. How can we mold the mundane?
