(lookup on

Billy Corgan briefly discussed his experiences creating an original score with pianist Mike Garson. This interview was later released on a promotional CD for the film Stigmata. These are the questions that were asked:

01. What attracted you to work on music for the motion picture Stigmata?

02. What do you feel is the difference between making music for a film versus making your own records?

03. What was your working relationship like with the filmmakers?

04. How important do you feel it is for the filmmakers to give you true artistic freedom?

05. How was Natalie Imbruglia chosen to sing the title theme to Stigmata?

06. How do you think the music in Stigmata will affect people who see the movie?

Stigmata is a 1999 supernatural horror film directed by Rupert Wainwright. Father Andrew Kiernan, a researcher of miracles on behalf of the Vatican, must discover the truth behind hairdresser Frankie Paige, who exhibits the Stigmata, the physical wounds Christ received from his crucifixion. His investigation is riddled with questions as he is torn between helping Frankie and revealing the discovery of a long-lost Gospel that would spell disaster for the future of the Catholic church.
