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:

The Wanderer in Alphabet City

This was just another walk in the late PM last Sunday after seeing BroadCloth in the Stone.

I like the way trees look in the busy skyline of Manhattan. Quite different from that of New England!

East Side Story: Roosevelt Island

This was a walk around Roosevelt Island on February 27th. We were supposed to go there as a photography group but the Big Apple got hit with a snow storm and the organizer postponed the outing. The walk started on 59th street riding the tram, ascending to the tramway and landing in the island. I then took West Road south and then north. Sadly, the smallpox hospital was fenced and out of reach!

However, I got to the Chapel, the lighthouse and saw some sculptures of E pluribus unum in the middle of the island on the west side.
