About Summer(s) in Review

A few weeks back I took a holiday to Barcelona and Berlin. It was the closest thing I’ve had to a proper vacation in quite some time. I thought it worthwhile to take a break from our regularly scheduled BLOG to share some images from it. Though really, the less context the better.

These Are Powers offer no easy answers

One reason I stopped being a full-time music writer is that I hate feeling compelled to write about what I’m hearing when language fails to do justice to the sound. It should also go without saying that, at times, what one sees at a concert actually seems even more important than the music.

Along those lines, I hope to write more in this space about synesthesia in the arts…

But, huh, now I’m starting to write checks that I cannot possibly cash. All I want to do right now is give you a brief introduction to an amazing new(ish) band I saw at a free show under an uncompleted stretch of Manhattan’s High Line Park this past Saturday. I’m not so much interested in what I might say about them but I do like my pictures.

Summer in Review (10/11)

Another backyard shot, this time from the concrete jungle that is Park Slope, Brooklyn. Seriously man, people are HARDENED in Park Slope.

Okay, actually this was taken at a rooftop afterparty for a bunch of composers after a Kronos Quartet concert in Prospect Park.

People in Park Slope are wimps.

I recall this party featured a really tasty array of nacho chips.
