A little about me

Hi all,

My name is Laura – I’m a senior in the ILR school, also pursuing a minor in business. I’m taking this class out of pure interest, my only background in music is 6 years of piano from 1st to 6th grade. My passion for electronic music started in 12th grade, when one of the classic town stoners showed me the Sub Focus remix of “Hold On” by Rusko. Senior year my itunes library was a bizarre mash of indie pop, pop, and heavy dubstep. I’m surprised I did so well on my AP tests considering I was studying for them while listening to Excision and Datsik, 12th planet, and Skrillex.

Since coming to college my tastes have progressed through the entire spectrum of electronic music, and right now Trance is my favorite genre (anyone else coming to ABGT 100?). For about a year and a half, I was writing for Camelback Music, a music blog that had about 20,000 followers at the time. I wrote a series of workout playlists, and covered new releases and concerts. I have been teaching spinning classes at the Cornell Fitness centers since the beginning of sophomore year, and my goal in these classes is to bring my participants brand new music across the entire electronic spectrum. Sharing new music with people is one of my favorite things to do, so here’s what I’m listening to now:

Polygon Dust – Porter Robinson feat. Lemaitre: This is my favorite track off of his new album Worlds. 

Real Love – Rootkit: I just love the sound quality of the melody line – it’s an effect that is signature to Rootkit.

As far as the class goes – I love to work in groups, and am open to collaborating. I would particularly love to work with anyone who can play an instrument.
