After a two-year absence due to the COVID pandemic, the big tent returns to the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church for my favorite event in Danbury: "The Greek Experience."
The weekend-long event that showcases the best in Greek food, culture, and arts and crafts, is best known for its music and folk dancing performances. With my new binaural/3D sound microphones, I can finally capture the sights and sounds of the experience like never before.
Basically, unlike regular mono microphones, binaural audio captures all the audio from a 360-degree perspective. The result is a video with sound that's captured from every angle as it happened.
Here's a video clip of one of the many folk dance performances at the event captured in binaural/3D audio (you'll need to wear headphones to hear and fully appreciate the sound in binaural format).

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.
The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.
Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.
Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
