My music tastes are fairly broad, so really haven’t changed much in ten years, since I still still listen to jazz, metal, hip hop, noise, ambient, etc. In fact, in the past two days, I’ve listened to three albums released in 2009 (Lost Channels by Great Lake Swimmers, In The Dream Of The Sea Life by Candy Claws, and Many Moons A-Go-Go by Sore and Steal), so I’m quite literally listening to the same music.
I think the shape of the music I make has remained similar in the past ten years too. I released this 10 years ago, and I while I would revise it here and there if it were new, I’d still be comfortable putting it out today. That said, the past year I’ve mostly put composition aside and focused on playing guitar (also think I bought my first guitar in 2009).
I had to take a moment yesterday getting my head around 20 years had past since 1999 (y2k panic scam, dotcom boom, the Kosovo war, the South Park Movie!).
