Introduction My mad obsession has always been collecting music. Learning *all* that there is to learn about composers, their lives, the particular environment under which they created their art, and so on. My burning passion is music. Sharing it, discussing it and constantly unearthing aural treasures in the wilderness, especially thanks to the hard work and dedication of a few amazing and like-minded fellow posters/bloggers. They are one of the main reasons why I am finally blogging-my gratitude is endless! Comments are VERY much appreciated!
Interests Music. The beginning of time up to 21st century. Loosely described as "Classical". Jazz, esp. avant-garde, Electronic music (IDM, breakcore, glitch, experimental, classic/kraut/wave, d&b, ambient, etc.) New Wave, Darkwave, Musique concrète, Underground house & techno(1980 to early 2000s, NY/NJ/Detroit/Chicago/Belgium/Italy/ etc.) Punk/Hardcore, Metal (black, dark, death, thrash, ambient, grindcore, speedcore etc.) Old school hip-hop, 1980's to mid 1990's. Much more but this is already too tedious to read
