"Classical" meaning most things from the Romantic period (especially Tchaikovsky and Wagner), lots of Baroque, Renaissance and Early music. Jazz from Big Band swing to Miles Davis and John Coltrane. I'm also getting into Charley Mingus. I enjoy Daft Punk, and a select few electronica tunes from the Europop/Eurodance scene.

Baroque and Renaissance performance practice, Automobiles, Glitch art, lo-fi recording.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
