David Byrne (Dumbarton, Scotland, 1952) A Scottish born New
David Byrne
(Dumbarton, Scotland, 1952)
A Scottish born New Yorker, of a restless and multifaceted talent, Byrne whizzes through
diverse fields of artistic expression, from experimental music to visual arts, and from
recitation to literature. The founder of the Talking Heads together with Chris Frantz and
Tina Weymouthnel in 1981, he has recorded with Brian Eno the album My Life in the Bush
of Ghosts, reissued in 2006. He is a recording producer, and has composed and directed
music for films, operas and documentaries. The soundtrack to The Last Emperor by
Bernardo Bertolucci, with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Cong Su, won an Oscar, and a Golden
Globe in 1988, and a Grammy in 1989. Since the mid-90’s Byrne has exhibited
installations, sculpture, and paintings, often unsigned. In 2009 Bicycle Diaries was
published, a diary of his experiences riding a bicycle across the cities he was touring. In
2010 in an unusual collaboration with the English DJ Fatboy Slim, was born a “disco
musical” inspired by the controversial figure of the ex First Lady of the Philippines, Imelda
Marcos.
