Music Preferences
Coming from the Black Metal Scene, the last couple of years I was mainly listening to Jazz and Electronic/Electro-Pop. Ofc. they are not the only genres I can live with, but played the most nowadays.

Only musical style I can't live with is Hip Hop resp. Rap. For me, this is not really music
Occupation
Studying political sciences and writing for a hifi-magazine for a part time job
