THE NEW EDITION OF HOW MUSIC WORKS NOW AVAILABLE!
"The pieces begin playing through the headphones when you enter the room, and so long as nobody else passes the sensor at exactly the same time as you, the piece becomes your own."
"An art exhibit that appeals to your ears as well as your eyes?"
"In the entrance hall of the Victoria and Albert Museum, I pick up a set of headphones, a bespoke MP3 player and a map to follow a trail of sounds through the galleries."
"I have just met David Byrne in the toilet at the V&A museum in London. He made me listen to him doing his business, which seemed a bit forward, and he kept playing with the taps."
"In more exalted mood, Liz Fraser, the ex-Cocteau Twins chanteuse, sings a wordless hymn to the Raphael Cartoons, while Simon Fisher Turner transforms a ceramics room into an atmospheric Mediterranean square."
