Music

This music page covers my interests and passions for the sonic arts.  Although I am a visual learner and a visual artist, music is probably the art I spend the most time being a patron.

10 Albums That Made An Impact

What Music Teaches Us About Photography

Thank You, Mad Platter


My musical interests are wide and varied.  I have an extended CD collection with some vinyl.  I often say that I have everything from Slayer to Mozart in my music collection, which is true.  All of my music has been legally obtained.  I still prefer physical media, although I do convert much of it to digital for use on my computer and phone.  I am in the process of cataloging my entire collection on Discogs.

These days, I prefer to listen to independent rock, metal, electronic, and ambient.  But, I own a little of everything.  An entire afternoon lost in listening to a great album is not a wasted moment to me.  Its a great way to grasp the subtleties in the work.

I believe in the value of Record Stores.  I greatly miss the local stores I used to visit regularly, like Tower Records and Music Trader.  One of my favorite things to do is visit a local store, and immediately turn on the Shazam app on my phone.  I have discovered so much new work this way.

Here are a couple local stores I recommend:

If you’re in Hollywood:  Amoeba Music

If you’re in the Inland Empire:  Rhino Records (Since Mad Platter Closed)

If you’re in San Diego (Encinitas):  Lou’s Records.  For a more complete list of San Diego record stores, see this link.
