Interviews

This section contains interviews from across two series. They are 'The Friday Interview', in addition to a series specifically created for Libre Music Production called "LMP Asks".

The Friday Interview-series was originally created by Gabriel Nordeborn, for his website zthmusic.com, where he interviewed interesting and inspiring members of the Linux audio community each week trying to shed some light on the many great members of the community. This content has kindly been donated to LMP.

LMP has now created a follow on to this series, called "LMP Asks". This series covers much of the same ground as the Friday Interview-series. The questions, and name, for this series were chosen with the help of the LMP community.
