M83 Press Conference During Moogfest 2011

There were very few opportunities for interviews during Moogfest -- it was a busy time for all. However, on Sunday afternoon the Moog Factory stayed open for a few back-to-back press conferences. Anthony Gonzalez, the mastermind behind M83, started them off with "Hi" to the press and public gathered. When no one spoke up right away with the first question, he sheepishly said "Bye" and pretended to leave. With smiles and some laughter, Gonzalez sat down again and gamely answered a very nonlinear group of questions. It was clear that this musician truly "leeves" for music, as he said in his charming French accent. My write up on PopMatters here.
