ON ZEN IN AUSTRALIA
A wonderful interview from May 2018. With thanks to the Buddhist Council of Western Australia.
Editor’s Note: it is a personal blessing to find this interview, as Ross participated in our wedding (that is, the wedding of Catherine and Warren). Ross kindly flew out from WA and gifted us with a spontaneous “sermon” - an improvisation on the accordion, while leaning against a tree in a small park where the ceremony took place. As a composer he is known for his performances on decaying, ruined pianos (see below).
