The Cinematic Experience: Sonic Acts XII (Paperback) is a book I edited together with Boris Debackere and Lucas van der Velden. It is for sale at Amazon. Consider purchasing it — I am quite proud of it and, well, I think it’s worth it’s price tag. On request I can make digital copies of my own interviews available at no cost, but hey, it’s so much more fun to get away from the laptop and read letters printed on paper. Heightens the concentration too.
Here’s the product description:
