* I grew up in the 80s and can remember a lot of music all around. I had two older siblings who were in high school in the late 80s and I can remember getting exposed to a wide variety of musical styles. While I don’t remember any one thing that made me think “I want to be a musician” I find myself to have been always interested in sound, and not just sound that is considered to be something we call music. I find that I have more sound experiences as time goes on, particularly those in nature or sounds of manmade contraptions and I always love when those two things go together, like birds singing along with an a/c window unit or something. I also definitely think that having children opened my ears up to a more chaotic outlook about sounds and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I moved more in the avant direction once they came along.
