Headphone bleed is a blog primarily centered on my relationship to music and music listening. In a strange way, though, it is also about my experience living in a surprisingly interesting city: Minneapolis. These two purposes seem incongruous, but I think that the social nature of music appreciation means that we have to talk about place, community, and so on. In other words, I think these are related somehow even if I'm not clear exactly how...yet.
In short, I want to talk about music and my city--I want to do so in a spirit of enthusiastic embrace and criticism. I want to have this space to talk about the aesthetic appreciation for and the difficult politics of sound as I live in/through the Twin Cities.
Since I am just starting this out, things could change, but I'm going to start there...
