TED-- which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design-- is a nonprofit that aims to promote cool, innovative ideas with conferences and lectures from some of the brightest people on earth. In February, David Byrne did a TED talk and the 15-minute presentation is now available to watch at TED's site or below.
Byrne's topic is an intriguing one: Do we all make things with a venue or context in mind? He promotes the idea that music evolves and adapts to its surroundings in a logical way, i.e. U2 make mid-tempo rock songs because that's what sounds good in an arena. He then connects this to bird calls and voting and it somehow makes sense, which is impressive.
