I'm thinking of the Robert Ashley series called Music with Roots in the
Aether. Interviews ("Landscapes") with composers such as Philip Glass,
usually with a quite roving camera. Available to watch at ubuweb:

An article by Scott MacDonald in Afterimage (March 1989), on the subject
of single-shot films, gives detailed descriptions of Andrew Noren's "Say
Nothing" and Morgan Fisher's "Documentary Footage." I haven't seen
either, but from the descriptions both seem to involve formally
nontraditional interviews, particularly Fisher's film.
