Since moving to Rochester, I have the longest commute that I’ve ever had. It’s typically about 30 minutes in the morning, sometimes a little bit longer at night or in the winter. If it snows, I can plan on anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour. Having always had ridiculously short drives to work, I’ve never had the question of what to do while going to work – listening to KLOVE or a good classical station for 5 to 15 minutes is a no-brainer.

My current office is located right under some kind of HVAC unit. It often vibrates like it’s about to take off, so music is a big self-defense mechanism at the moment! Here are a few of my current favorites, including my personal favorite which is my own somewhat eclectic mix of genres: [Read more…] about Current Playlist Obsessions
New music for me and the Korg, that is. I spent a happy couple of hours tonight working on Good to Me (Assad) as well as Mia and Sebastian’s Theme, and Planetarium (La La Land). It’s been awhile since I sat down to play for pure enjoyment, and I loved every minute.
What’s new on my playlist? Foy Vance, a Northern Irish musician whose music I’ve been enjoying. Check out his song Guiding Light, and see what I’m talking about.
I’d love to hear what new music you’re discovering – feel free to leave a comment!
