The November 2015 issue of electronic Musician covers Three Decades of Interviews.
Over the past three decades, we've conducted thousands of interviews with the brightest minds in music. Some waxed philosophical, some had uncanny technological foresight,and some were utterly hilarious. But they were all inspirational. Here are some of our favorite words of wisdom collected over the years....
- Laurie Anderson - September 1985
- Frank Zappa - September 1986
- Wendy Carlos - November 1986
- John Cage - March 1988
- Brendan O' Brien - March 1993
- Sylvia Massy - December 1994
- Tony Visconti - October 1995
- Danny Elfman - February 1997 and many more!
Come on inside and take a stroll down memory lane with us.
