Back to LIBRE.TOWN · Shrines Index

Welcome to the Music Room!

In case you did not guess from the existence of this shrine alone, I am a music head! I have grown up in a household where music was everywhere: collector parents with a taste in music as wide and deep as an ocean, and then moving on to various subcultures with plenty of music influences along the way: for example hip-hop and rap, folk, punk, ska and metal, all omnipresent in the social circles I ended up in. I have retained a very open perspective on music to this day and still strive to have a pretty comprehensive taste in music!

Through this shrine, I want to share my love and appreciation both for music as a whole, and specific artists, tracks and albums that I have come to enjoy: through my (probably ever unfinished) hand-pixeled CD collection inspired by the CD World clique, and the Obscure Band of the Month section in the sidebar.

Additionally, it is also home to Vinyl Ventures, a series where I take a first personal look at the mass of vinyls and tapes that I own yet have never listened to (scroll down a bit!)

Vinyl Ventures

I have always felt like while I enjoy a whole ton of music, I cannot seem to connect many pieces of trivia or knowledge to the artists that I like. When you ask my dad about anything in his collection, he can talk to you for at least an hour about the artist's history, his own personal history with the album and at least two or three fun facts! I loved that growing up, and I still love that today. I envy him, and that's why I started Vinyl Ventures, a series of posts here on Libre Town, in which I consciously explore my music collection and put down my thoughts and remarks on them.

Pixel CD Collection

Sometimes, I like making pixel art of CDs I own, inspired by (and using templates from) the CD World clique, a super cool web clique about just this! Click on each album to take a listen.
