Minoru Miki, composer


In late 2009, I interviewed Minoru Miki, a modern classical composer, conductor, musician, and musicologist. The interview was by email. Although Miki's English is rather good, he answered my English questions in Japanese. These were then translated into English by Leanne Ogasawara.

Ian Astbury, singer


On the 26th of March, 2010, I did a telephone interview with Ian Astbury, the singer of the legendary rock band The Cult. He was in the USA (East coast I think). He was very happy to talk, and the interview could easily have been extended well beyond the one hour that it lasted. This is the first 28 minutes of the interview. When I have time I will carefully transcribe the rest of our fascinating conversation and post it here.
