Today is a good day! Episode 2 has gone live and is now ready for all your ears out there. Get ready for an interesting account from Aaron, a 21-year old musician from Brooklyn. I met him during the summer in a park in Manhattan. He was hanging out with his friend Malcolm. I was walking around testing some audio equipment and recording sounds. I bumped into them and we ended up talking for more than an hour. I was fascinated by these two guys. So we exchanged contact information and kept in contact.
A few weeks later Aaron invited me over to the neighbourhood in Brooklyn that he grew up in: Bedford-Stuyvesant. A neighbourhood originally developed after the war for war veterans. Later on it was designated as social housing by the city's authorities and became mostly subsidized social housing projects. As we walked over to the building he grew up in, Aaron showed me something. Something interesting. And disturbing. That something became the main topic of our conversation.
