Here's my interview in two parts with the wildly versatile and adventurous composer Philip Glass. I still haven't transcribed the part where we talk about his film-score work, but I promise I'll get to it. Movies are always relevant.
Which reminds me: I also blogged about a very funny and inventive critical dissection of Star Trek, the youthful, sexy 2009 version. Always relevant, like I said.
