Your favorite Foreign Correspondent has made it all the way to Riga, Latvia, to attend the famed Sound Forest Festival that encompasses avant-garde and experimental music from around the world. You may be asking yourself what does this have to do with Brooklyn? Well, you may recognize one of the rising stars of the Brooklyn music scene Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) in the video below.
Daniel and I have been on a few adventures which we hope you will enjoy. For our first chat, we were inspired by the ex-Soviet press conference building, Preses Nams, housing the the festival, so we did a little impromptu press conference. Daniel, being of Russian descent, has a lot to say about Eastern European supermarkets — the quality of their jackets and candy –among other things.
