Brooklyn author John Seabrook, New Yorker staff writer and author of Nobrow, tells the fascinating story of the contemporary music industry in his new book The Song Machine. Starting with the science behind catchy musical “hooks”, the book also encompasses how new songs are created, and the money, business, marketing, and technology that have contributed to the pop music landscape. Seabrook talks about the book and the challenges of translating pop music into literature with actor Dion Graham (The Wire, etc.), who narrates the audio version of The Song Machine. The discussion will be accompanied by music and video clips that are sure to leave you with songs stuck in your head!
