My self-summary
I find knowledge and nonsense equally vital.

Due to an obsessional need to create music most of the time I am thinking about music, producing, gigging, or thinking about ideas/inventions.
I sing and play a few different instruments which keeps me out of trouble most the time.

A lot of my stuff is here: https://soundcloud.com/annaheth

Sometimes I take used children’s electronic toys and change them into new twisted musical instruments. It's subversive, but ultimately pointless.

I’m interested in evolution, psychology and the arts in general, but good conversation can come in many guises.

Space is cool. So are parallel realities and time travel. Animals are funny, I openly anthropomorphise them, and cats are particularly ace. Actual maths is hard, but I'm obsessed with the golden ratio and it's manifestations.

Mindless conformity annoys me. ("We are all individuals!" "I'm not.")

Getting out in nature is also good.
I've got a very open mind (occasionally bits of brain fall out) and am always up for new experiences and meeting new peeps.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach music and perform, compose and produce it on the side, whilst inventing new instruments.. and am now considering moving into music therapy...
I don't like to stay still for too long.
I’m really good at
I'm the most modest person you will ever meet. In fact I got a bespoke award made for my superior modesty skills, which I keep on a mahogany mantelpiece.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like factual books about topics including culture, science, society and politics; and twisty fiction, particularly surrealism, dystopias/utopias what could happen/what could be happening etc. (some examples: Self, Orwell, Huxley, Adams, Reynolds)

I like documentaries (Adam Curtis, Louis Theroux, Grandad Attenborough), drama (Dexter, Treme, the Returned), sci-fi films, epic films and films about time travel, comedy and anything that makes yer think innit. (Amelie, Inception, Back to the Future, Groundhog Day, Pi, andonandonandon...open to suggestion)

Comedy-wise Vic & Bob, Alan Partridge, Stewart Lee, Louis C.K. Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker all rule.

Music-wise - good songwriting i.e. Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Dutch Uncles, Tori Amos, Bowie, Alt-J etc, trashy noisey music i.e. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Pixies, Sleigh Bells, Buzzcocks etc. other fuzzy/jangly guitar music, i.e. The Smiths, Bombay Bicycle Club, Deer Hoof etc, Jazz i.e. Mingus, Django, Evans, Hancock or Monk, Electronica i.e. good crazy snarey music, vocal electronica (i.e. The Knife, Bjork) socially aware hip-hop, filthiness, prettiness, Warp Records, good house and electro (not the commercial shisni, Trentemoller, Jon Hopins et al), 70s Ska, film music ie. Yan Tiersen, Williams, Nyman, Herrmann; and classical i.e. Debussy, Chopin, Reich...I'm trying to be less of a snob by finding merit in commercial music but it tends to eat my brain before I get the chance to enjoy it.
I can appreciate most organisation of sounds to be honest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing friends, at a dive bar/party type do/seeing some sort of band/electronic music/le pubbe, or some such similar soiree. Else-wise I'll be writing a tune, playing music to five people in a room with sticky floors, or getting pissed up and video gaming.

I'd like to find open-minded people that are interested in going to check out exciting new music or do new things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is the internet folks.
You should message me if
I get on best with people who are articulate, free thinkers and a bit weird.
