Carl Barat, musician

In 2010, Carl Barat of Libertines fame came to Tokyo to promote his eponymous solo album. I interviewed him at the offices of the company promoting him in Japan.

Jean Michel Jarre, musician

On the 12th of May, 1993, I attended a press conference at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square held by the French musician Jean Michel Jarre in connection with his new album "Chronologie" and a concert tour, which was being sponsored by the Swiss watch company Swatch.


Claire Constans, curator

Back in May 2006, I interviewed Claire Constans, the chief curator of Chateau de Versailles, for an article I was writing. The interview was a set of questions sent by email.
