Being Jon Brion (Using weird instruments) January 24, 2008

Posted by rugwu in Uncategorized.

The kids over at The A.V. Club sat down with Jon Brion recently for an in-depth and particularly insightful interview. Brion is a legend of modern pop music and has helped launch the careers of both Fiona Apple and Kanye West, producing Fiona’s first two albums and ‘Ye’s classic, Late Registration. He’s also a frequent collaborator with indie-epic director and 2008 Acadamy Award nominee Paul Thomas Anderson, and scored both Punch Drunk Love and Magnolia as well as Michel Gondry’s college staple, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Brion is known for his one-man-band improvised live shows and has only released one solo album, Meaningless, which is typically hard to find, but occasionally available here. Check the interview for a rare look inside a pop mastermind.

UPDATE: Bonus points for anyone who knows what a chamberlin or a mellotron is.
