Smart guy. It's interesting to see him on HN. I highly recommend his captivating book on music, How music works [1]. It's part an anthropological study and part an autobiography and but he goes into how music has evolved with regards to technology and the music industry in general. He's been touring a lot lately.

Some interesting ideas; the referenced tech is now dated. It's even easier to make games now then when this book was published.
