Jonathan Meiburg is a bonafide rock star.  But for the past twenty years, when he isn’t touring or cutting a new album, Jonathan has been routinely drawn to the Falkland Islands and the striated caracara, a rare falcon whose brain has been found to be strangely human.  He’s also one of the most creatively generous people we know.  Which is why we asked him to be the composer for The Well.  We hope you enjoy this in-house interview as much as we enjoyed making it.
