Music: I like most types of music, but I've been on an electronic
binge for several years now. I'm trained as a classical pianist. At
the moment, the genre of music I listen to most frequently is
electrohouse, but I also love EDM more broadly.
Some examples: Justice, Daft Punk, RJD2, Pretty Lights, Danger,
Bonobo, The Flashbulb, Trentemoller, Burial, The Future Sound of
London, Holy Fuck, Amon Tobin, Chicane. But also: Radiohead,
Nirvana, Gorillaz, Daft Punk...
Shows: Firefly, Planet Earth, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The
Wire, Parks and Recreation, Lost, Arrested Development,
Books: most of what I'm currently reading is related to my PhD.
