  The book A History of Music with Photos was written by the local musicologist Son Tae-ryong. It deals with the history of music in Daegu since the period following Korean liberation from Japanese Imperialism in 1945. Son, now historian, originally majored in Western Music, and then continued to study the theories of Korean traditional music. Afterward, he has published several articles and reports on various aspects of Korean music in Daegu. Along with Western music, he has worked on Korean musicals covering the history of more than 50 years. He has arranged and classified them.

This has led him to a deeper understanding of the local social culture. However, his A History of Music with Photos includes photos which are not published in his previous books.
