Over the years I have interviewed for my books numerous musicians, artists, creatives. I’ve tended to talk with people and take handwritten notes, which are later transcribed. I offer to send the draft transcriptions to interviewees for correction. More recently this has also involved gaining ethical approval for research with the public from my university research ethics committee. And a technological innovation: I have begun to film some interviews, edit them and put them on youtube.
Many of the transcriptions, or links to them, are located elsewhere on the website, but I thought it an idea also to begin to put new and old interviews in one place, for ease of access.
