Salutations and Greetings!
This site was recommended to me by my boyfriend, lord_tris, to come sign up and post about my non-audiophilic experiences with stuff he has and comes across.
I like a lot of the higher mids and highs. I was called a Treble Monster today and so far that's a good thing?
I am a first generation Hungarian. In growing up, I listened to a lot of European artists that my mother thoroughly enjoyed and were not necessarily popular in the States. She had a record player and two giant speakers. She had a double tape deck that could record over to the other and a special button to push that would play the other side of the cassette tapes without taking them out. I remember a giant equalizer that you would be able to manually adjust all the highs, mids, and low's and the whole thing was so shiny and silvery. She played that whenever she could and especially enjoyed playing music whenever cooking or cleaning was involved. To me, disco never died in Europe, it simply evolved.
There are a few albums I really like and can listen to from beginning to end. One of those happens to be Radiohead's OK Computer (it just fits) but they're not on my top list of artists I'd prefer to listen to. My first band I enjoyed listening to was The Moody Blues and had every single album of theirs. I've also seen them in concert about 4-5 times and was quite enjoyable to sit and actually listen to a band play.
My last music event I went to was DJ Tiesto when he came to Columbus, Ohio in March this year.
I have to have music playing when I'm in the car. I also prefer to drive as my car has the XM satellite radio. Naturally, it's on Chill or one of the other two electronic music stations before it. I have no idea what the rest of my presets are set to. Don't mess with my radio in my car. Those are the only three stations we'll be listening to.
Here's some of the stuff I enjoy listening to:
Depeche Mode - favorite band
VNV Nation - second most favorite
Classical - especially Vivaldi and Beethoven
60's, 70's, 80's and mid-90's music
Lots of electronic music which contains a variety of chillstep, techno, trance, dance, EBM, etc...
Records. I have a strange affinity for the subtle *pop* that comes up now and then and the sound is just so much better.
Epic soundtracks like the Matrix, Lord of the Rings, 300, etc.
DO NOT play country or rap/r&b in my presence. I shall have to thrash you with Dubstep in your sleep!
Even though I no longer use them, I still have my old CD player I used to carry around with me and my old cassette tape Walkman which has a switch on the side that allows me to hear the B side without taking the cassette tape out.
I guess that's all for now. Not sure what else to say. I like concerts, I enjoy music, and stuff.
