Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The exchange of music between the Caribbean and New York City was dynamic at the time, and Trinidadian artists were recording in New York City. My mother’s plans for me to study classical music and become a concert pianist began even before my parents and siblings left Trinidad to stay with her for a few years when I was eight. #2 I was interested in how music worked rather than learning to play others’ compositions. I felt that those moments of contemplation stretched into what felt timeless. I wanted to know more. #3 I had a room in the attic of my home that became my mad scientist lab, where I would experiment with music. I would play the radio stations that were popular with seventh-graders, but one night, I stumbled upon a new station. #4 Music is a physical event, and like most nontrivial physical systems, it has structure. It is defined by tone, meter, rhythm, pitch, melody, and harmony.
