Notes from the Basement is a staged mixtape, exploring love and loss through the perspective of an aid worker during the European refugee influx of 2015-2016. After founding a music program in an emergency refugee camp in Berlin, Kate Eberstadt lived in her parents' basement for a year, processing - and not processing - the experience: that of the families she was worked with, the aid workers and other people she met there, and her own. Through choral arrangements, electronic loops, and Middle Eastern music, 'Notes from the Basement' grapples with finding humanity in seemingly inhuman circumstances.
