In this candid, in-depth interview from December 1984, Anderson talks about her very diverse inspirations, including her relationship to technology, her past lives, television, and handheld versus electronic instruments. She also plays samples of the music and sounds that fuel her process, as well as some of her own work
The highly regarded Speaking of Music series (1983-1992) was co-presented by the Exploratorium and Charles Amirkhanian of KPFA radio.
