The English composer Gavin Bryars is interviewed onstage in front of a live audience by Charles Amirkhanian as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium's Speaking of Music series on February 13, 1986. With his wry sense of humor and his fascination with arcane philosophical movements of the early 20th century, Bryars fashions an engrossing evening of story telling, intermixed with discussions of his latest musical achievements.
