This Sunday, May 18 at the Rocon Communications music chat page, my guest for a live/interactive text chat session is producer/composer CRAIG LEON, who's '70s production work with Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell & Suicide put him at the forefront of the NYC alt rock scene.

Craig Leon is an American-born record producer and composer who played a key role in the development of the ‘70s New York alternative music scene, producing early recordings by the likes of Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell & The Voidoids and Suicide. Over the years, he has helmed over 150 LPs & CDs of alternative pop music, including a who’s who of alt rock and cult fave greats – Willie Alexander & The Boom Boom Band, DMZ, The Weirdoes, The Zeros, Dwight Twilley, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, The Sound, The Fall, The Go-Betweens, The Chameleons, The Records, Beat Farmers, and many more.

Since 1998, Craig has focused on classical composition, orchestration, arrangement and recording, working with such artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Andreas Scholl, Sir James Galway, Joshua Bell, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.

As a composer and recording artist himself, his pair of avant-garde electronic albums from 1982 – ‘Nommos’ and ‘Visiting’ – have recently been reissued in one package as ‘Craig Leon: Early Electronic Works – Nommos Visiting’. Craig is performing both works at selected venues in the US and Europe over the course of 2014-15.

The Facebook Music Interviews" are LIVE/interactive text chat sessions with music personalities who are active on Facebook, hosted by Canadian-based music journalist and consultant Roch Parisien on his Rocon Communications music chat page.

Between now and the event, you can post advance questions for CRAIG here on the Event Page.

At the appointed time on Sunday, the formal interview begins on the Rocon Communications page, which consists of CRAIG and me exchanging text comments in Q&A format in a status update/message thread specifically set up there. You will need to "refresh" the page periodically to see the new comments.

Guests will be able to submit questions of their own, as comments in a separate status update/message thread also set up on the page. I will "moderate" those posts and work them into the interview as we go along.

You need to allow some time for us to type in questions and responses. If at any point you find things are lagging, you can check out some of the video & audio clips and links that are provided as extension material and come back. Or check in again later in the evening or even the next day...the full exchange will remain accessible on the page. Afterwards, a full transcript will be published to the "Notes" tab of the Rocon Communications page.
