Recorded on March 8, 1984 as part of the San Francisco’s Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews avant-garde vocalist and composer, Joan La Barbara, before a live audience. Born in 1947 La Barbara has worked with such well known modern composers as John Cage, Philip Glass, Morton Feldman, and her husband of many years, Morton Subotnick.
