The Complete Score From "The Catherine Wheel"

David Byrne


Choreographer Twyla Tharp commissioned Talked Heads frontman David Byrne to compose a soundtrack for her dance project The Catherine Wheel, and the result was a strange and wonderful program of pop music featuring songs that fans of Talking Heads would certainly enjoy (“Big Blue Plymouth,” “What a Day That Was”) along with lots of instrumental pieces that vary in style from funk to ambient to experimental. Not all of it will appeal to everyone, but there’s tons of fun and very interesting music here.
