My Musical Profile: I've mainly been listening to the Progressive strain of Electronica (deadmau5, Hybrid, Paul Oakenfold, Crystal Method), since 2008 or so; I'm still banging to the classic Seattle wave (STP, Pearl Jam, Tool, Primus); and I was raised on the purest of classic rock (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, U2). Finally, when studying, I really like going to the sax/piano/guitar Jazz musicians of American legend. (Bill Evans Trio, Oliver Lake, Chris Botti, Wes Montgomery).
- Some comments on today's music listening: Peer-to-peer file sharing has fallen out of favor, due mostly to the prevalence of crippling viruses and spyware riding piggyback on your Foo Fighter's mp3...So much so that now, listening to Internet radio, with applications like Digitally Imported (www.di.fm) and Pandora, is the dominating new avenue for a casual music fan's new music. It becomes a serious (i.e., important!) engine of musical discovery. For me, these services helped to reignite my passion for music. U know.
