So, what do you do?

I’ve been a hairdresser for almost twenty years.

Around '96 or so, I was learning to play guitar when it occurred to me that most of my favorite music was synth-driven, so I chucked it and bought a synth instead (Ensoniq SQ-80). I’ve never looked back.

For a while, I wanted to make music my career, but now I think I’m better off having it be a no-pressure, just for fun situation.

Hej from Sweden! Nice too meet you all!
I just switched from being a 3D-Artist for 6 years to do coding for a living. Now working as an iOS App developer.

Electronic music has always been my choice and when I stopped channeling my creative desire through 3D, music naturally took it’s place.

Running my own business besides a full-time employment i promise my self that I will never try to make money out of music and just enjoy fiddling with no pressure :slight_smile: (well i make sounds for my own app projects some times.)

Now I’m testing different gear to see what fits my way of working. I started within Ableton live and push but I soon realised that hardware is so much more fun and suits me better!

I teach English at a kindergarten in Seoul, I’ve been a teacher for about 3 years. On top of that, I’m also doing a masters degree in applied linguistics. Unfortunately both of those things leave little time left for playing with my music gear/juggling/home brewing and a host of other hobbies that get neglected these days.

Great to have a story to all these avatars :slight_smile:
Anesthesiologist here. Trauma.
Severe injured patients, thats where i’m mainly at.
Not that much research.
Not enough time to spend with my machines.
This and the lack of time to spend with my family makes me wanna reduce my worktime in 1-2years i guess…
Music, Surfing, Love… That’s where I want to be…

Something different here; Military personal, working as professional soldier.
Been to ISAF mission in Afghanistan. I work mostly radio comunications and translations.

Its just to pay bills. I hate military.

My biggest interests besides music momenteraly is spiritualism, sacred geometry etc… Trying to connect that with music. :slight_smile:

I do IT now for more than twenty years…and the job pays the bills and finances my Elektrons. And you know how it is, i dont like working in IT anymore, stupid useless jobs there, just circling around itself, without a deeper meaning, but a man gotta do what a man needs to do, to feed the family. Having two girls, one 7 years and one 1 months old. They are my joy, my love, and i do it for them. :slight_smile: :heart:

It can be! It really varies, last year was tough as hell, but this year it’s a whole lot smoother. It really depends. It’s something I can handle though - when I see ‘Senior Estimator for a Concrete and Masonry Contractor’ that sounds impressive to me, as I literally wouldn’t have a single clue as to where to start. With teaching you can at least use a lot of intuition. :slight_smile:

Estimating/Sales. That’s the rewarding side, I’ve been called the “Concrete Evangelist.” I love my job and sharing with customers and clients. I excel at the Pre-Construction Phase.
Being a smaller company, this means everyone here has a lot more responsibility, which is another term for headache and sacrifice.
Project Management means sometimes I have a lot of fires. I also teach inside my office.
My mantra “We all put our pants on the same way”
We are all human. As humans we are all imperfect.
Embrace your mistakes for what they are, embrace others mistakes with a keen eye, surround yourself with an A+ Team.
Raise your IQ and EQ. Don’t let emotion get in the way.

Wow, we’ve got an incredibly diverse group here! For some reason, I’m surprised by the number of architects, though. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Anyway, by day, I’m an attorney. To put it simply, I practice in the area of business litigation. By night, I’m a husband and father to a newborn son.

How do I find time to spend on my hobby? I’ve recently started to bring my boxes out on the couch in the evening, along with a pair of headphones. That way, I can watch TV with the family and jam a little, too. FWIW, the Tempest makes for an excellent couch-jamming instrument, as does the A4! :slight_smile:
