From Berlin To Brooklyn: Nils Frahm & Greg Haines in NY

Last Sunday marked the last day in the US tour for Berlin Pianist & composer Nils Frahm. Dumbo, Brooklyn was his last stop where he played a set of his solo piano works accompanied by Greg Haines, the English composer, in Galapagos art space.

This was the first US tour for the two composers after appearing in numerous performances across  Europe. Frahm’s music is minimalist, emotional and evocative while Haines’ is a blend of modern classical and ambient.

The evening started with New York based composer Kyle Bobby Dunn playing a set of his solo guitar ambient work accompanied by visual artworks.

The following pictures were taken during Dunn’s performance:

And the last two pieces he played may be watched on YouTube:

Offering new views of lower Manhattan, now people can enjoy a few more feet of water front & probably get a chance to walk off those calories they gain from the nearby ice cream factory & famous pizza place!

This was another Brooklyn expedition with NYC Photo Outings group last Saturday. We started at Smith and 9 street Subway Station(F & G) and roamed the streets of Red Hook. I managed to capture some video after the outing where the cloud formations were dramatic and quite fascinating.

From Brooklyn, with Love!

It was sunny, somewhat cold last Saturday when we ascended back to the surface of Atlantic Ave. Regardless, I decided to take a walk around the Ave, Furman Street where some abandoned warehouses are located and then hit The Heights and crossed the bridge to Manhattan. All of the places seen on this walk are featured in a couple of video clips and you can also see some of the still photos taken.
