You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod or mp3 player and write down the first 20 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun!

(I barely have any music on my ipod because it's really my iphone and has no space. So this is coming from a limited version of my musical taste. Also, I'm going to skip artist repeats.)

1. Desert Kisses - Siouxsie and the Banshees
2. Shadowboxer - Fiona Apple
3. People Of The Far North - Nobuo Uematsu (FF X Piano Collection)
4. Samurai - Juno Reactor
5. Been A Son - Nirvana
6. Suicide Picnic - Velvet Acid Christ
7. Cruise (Don't Stop) - Nightmares On Wax
8. Suffer Little Children - The Smiths
9. Horror Show - The Birthday Massacre
10. Deeply Disturbed - Infected Mushroom
11. The Killing Moon - Echo & The Bunnymen
12. Remember That - Rakim
13. Be Mine Tonight - Blackmore's Night
14. Rainbow-colored Crayon - Akizo Shikata (Ar tonelico III)
15. Loco - Coal Chamber
16. Chinese Arithmetic - Eric B. & Rakim
17. Fiction (Dreams in Digital) - Orgy
18. Sepsis - Otep
19. Lake Bodom - Children of Bodom
20. Holiday in Cambodia - Dead Kennedies

Where is my Tool? :[ Oh well.

I make music. I've been playing piano since I was about five years old, classically trained, and played percussion/sang all throughout middle school and high school. Music was my main passion for a long time. I took two years of music theory, got a 4 (out of 5) on my AP exam, and was fully ready to go to a music conservatory to study music composition.

Life got in the way, I don't really know how to explain it, but now I'm here. ya know. Writing. And I wouldn't change it.

But I still love music. The passion hasn't lessened. But it's true, I've been focusing less on music because I've started focusing more on writing. And I don't want to lose it.

As far as composition goes, I mostly improv on piano, and have handwritten scores. However, in 2008 (wow... so long ago, fuck), my boyfriend got me Logic 8 Express for the Mac. It's a music making program, like Fruity Loops.

My boyfriend is an incredible composer. I know that is a dubious claim to make, especially considering I am his girlfriend, so I don't expect anyone to take that seriously. But hopefully one day he will release the iron grip he has on his music, and then I'll be vindicated. :D I have zero doubt that he would be successful if he did.

Anyway! Point being, he inspired me to start making music electronically. This includes anything from techno to orchestral to piano. Electronic doesn't necessarily mean the electronica genre - it can be anything.

So I'm trying to get back into it. I have a sectionz artist page (secionz is an electronic composition community), and if you're interested, you can check it out. There's only one song on there now, and it's the first full song I ever composed electronically, so it's pretty simple and not that great, but it's not horrible either. I've done much more, and once I complete more compositions, I will post them. If you're a music person, feedback is very much appreciated. Thanks. :)

(note: don't feel obligated to comment on the song that's there, "Beetle Elegy," unless you really want to. It's an old piece, nothing crazy. I'm more concerned with how my newer work is doing.)
