    Hello from Toronto via Hong Kong

    I am totally new at forums, this is actually the first one I joined. What brought me here is my recent acquisition of a digital HD system last month and thereafter every evening in the study with the system playing music. Since it can play lossless music, which is so different if the system is up to it, I've looking for FLAC and downloads. And somehow it took me here!

    In fact I have posted something on Steve Winwood before introducing myself toady, talking about etiquette...

    I live in Toronto now after moving from Hong Kong last year. I listen to all sort of music. Jazz, prog rock and classical are my favorite, but I also love kunqu and Pingtan which are very poetic.

    As an architect, honestly I have allowed chef names on my superhero list now. Well, when you get older you get more realistic, don't you. Satisfying your stomach sometimes is more fulfilling than worshipping star architects. Works for me!

    Welcome to the forums. Music does give us incite into our inner self and ability to express oneself on this journey of life. ENJOY.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    The history of Hong Kong is quite fascinating in the sense that it managed to grow from a fishing village to a metropolis in 100 years. It met a few scots there, they are pioneers in helping the city grow in all sorts of ways. Round of whiskies for the folks...
    Just an observation: Two months ago, my wife spot the Miles Davis Band in town, Toronto, and the tickets were quite reasonable. Immediately, we bought two tickets. Next morning, I felt something not right, then thought again and again and realized that Miles had already passed away. And of course.
    Two weeks ago, I was thinking whether to go to the Steely Dan concert in October. It would be on my own and I don't have a car yet in Toronto. Much pondering and mental organization went on for a week; and then came the news that Walter Becker had gone. Finally I decided not to go for some other reasons.
    So you see, may be we would listen to dead musicians more often as we get older...Sad but true though. Hope everyone should get to see their musical hero whenever a chance arises!

    Welcome to the forum, sundial

    As a professional musician myself I have always felt that architecture and music work together.

    We hope that you will enjoy your time here.
