Red Bull Music Academy looks at New York to ask how and why its rapid changes have taken place. The old pathology of a sleazy, crime-ridden, dirt-infested port city of decades past has been replaced by a shiny new playground for the rich. So where does that leave the future potential for an artist or musician?
Nicolas Jaar, Dev Hynes, Venus X, Veronica Vasicka & more weigh in on why they stay in New York and how musicians are trying to position themselves with unique attributes in a city so big that 100 people are doing the same thing as you ... every minute. It’s a Red Bull Music Academy film done with m ss ng p eces on production and directed by Will Calcutt.
