Johanna Botta heads out to Bushwick, Brooklyn, to find The Muse, Brooklyn’s premier circus school and event facility. Previously housed on the ill-fated block of Williamsburg that also held Glasslands, 285 Kent, and Death By Audio, the school has a new home further out on the L train, this time with plenty of room to stretch their legs and host classes and events. Here, we check in with the founder of The Muse, Angela Buccinni, and learn some circus skills from aerial artist and instructor, Nicki Miller.

Brian Belott makes collages, collects found audio, and is an all around great and talented dude. A while back he invited me to over to his studio in Brooklyn to hang out, chat, and listen to some of the audio in his collection. We talked about collages, Michael jackson, cassette tapes and lots of other good stuff. While you listen do yourself a favor and spend some time on his website.
