Record New York

 
 

Record New York is a personal video series I created, featuring intimate and impromptu musical performances in New York City.

In 2014, I started setting up brief meetings with musician friends, to film them performing songs in their neighborhoods. I am usually unprepared, the musicians as well. I love shooting music with a documentary mindset, improvising visually and reacting to the performance and the environment. Really embracing imperfections and hopefully encounter surprises as you might experience them in documentary settings. With Record New York I try to bring the excitement of a live performance onto the screen and hopefully capture a few special and authentic moments. More importantly though, I get to experiment with artists and share music I love and which perhaps you haven’t heard of yet.
