Philip Glass is an enduringly prolific composer, collaborator, intellectual, and one of the inventors of a type of music called minimalism. In this extensive and candid interview from 1988, Glass discusses many things including his involvement in world music, his innovative approach to rhythm, and his work with film and opera. He also talks about the people who have inspired him, including legendary composer, conductor, and teacher Nadia Boulanger and sitarist Ravi Shankar. The interview includes many samples of his musical work.
The highly regarded Speaking of Music series (1983-1992) was co-presented by the Exploratorium and Charles Amirkhanian of KPFA radio. Conversations between Mr. Amirkhanian and prominent musicians and composers focused on the creative process. The archived files have been released as a podcast series.
