Nick Koenig, aka Hot Sugar asks the question: Why do we need instruments anymore?

This is the first part of Hot Sugar’s Cold World, a new documentary on visionary producer Nick Koenig, aka Hot Sugar. Nick ventures out into the city and records the sounds around him, posing the question, “why do we need instruments anymore?”

On his adventure, Hot Sugar surreptitiously samples a $90,000 grand piano while posing as an interested buyer, records legendary filmmaker and musician Jim Jarmusch, and raps with Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist).
