Send me your sounds

ThingsThatMatter is a love woven tumblelog on everything new music and inspiration for clean ears and open minds. And vice versa.

You'll find lots of pearls from the world of neo-classical music—think Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, etc. But I also like to peek into other styles that are closely related like ambient, electronica, jazz, and experimental. And I share insights, photos and news I come across while hunting for new music.

So, mind your head, use some good headphones, and simply enjoy.

Oh, and I curate a free weekly digest which brings you all my musical findings directly into your mailbox. Subscribe, and as a thank you I will send you a previously unreleased track by neo-classical piano maestro Fabrizio Paterlini.

One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world.

I’m pretty proud of our record of innovation, even we had U1 before iCloud, or the Windows equivalents; we introduced overlay scrollbars first; we designed Unity with a single icon left launcher, and full screen search, before anybody else. Apple’s launchpad, and Gnome Shell all came later.

As some of you might know I’m a dedicated Ubuntu user. So I like the idea of getting rid of Windows and/or Mac symbols on my beloved computer system.

System76 has released a neat laptop with a pre-installed Ubuntu operating system, the Serval Pro. And guess what? It comes with an Ubuntu key instead of a Win one. Looovely!
