i was a trumpet player, on my way to becoming a symphonic trumpetist, but became dystonic. i dabble in classical guitar and plan on a degree in philosophy.
if im not listening to classical, im listening to electronica(electronic music). if im not listening to those, it's either oldies, classic rock, or jazz.
romantic and modernist classical are my favourite. favorite composers are probably bruckner, ives,richard strauss, and vaughn williams. my favorite instruments, are the trumpet, the bass trombone, the full organ/church organ, piano, and classical guitar.
as far as electronica is concerned, definitely my favs are progressive trance, hard trance, progressive house, and ambient/space music(although i try to stay away from the new-age stuff as much as possible!). hardstyle occasionally. chill-out and trip-hop occasionally.
in general, i try to stay away from any vocals and physical-instrument-like sounds at all. i want just pure electronic sound.
for the most part, im all about the underground.
im pretty anti mainstream, simply because to appeal en masse, it's watered down - taken to the lowest common denomonater.
but if it's good stuff, then it's good stuff. it a grey area.
my favorite artists are probably soliquid, jay lumen, benny benassi, and tiesto.
my favorite band, hands down, is led zeppelin.
followed close behind is whitesnake.
i also dig the beach boys.
so there u have it.
