Too many to just name one. Let´s keep it with this: daydreaming, listening to music, meeting friends, drinking coffee.

To have a ball with my little boy.

No cigarettes left.

If not yourself, who would you be ::
Someone who can sing and play many instruments, playing gigs, being on tour with friends. Oh wait, and I would love to be an ice hockey player. I realized that, when I was already way to old to even start skating. Too bad. I would be a good goaly, ´cause I have great reflexes. (can´t believe I am just writing this)

“Hey, I am Jan Sturm, one of the founders of aerotone netlabel. I am supposed to write a few lines about me. So let me tell you that I am of course very proud of my little lovely netaudio platform, I am putting a lot of heart in. If I am not listening to music then I am probably changing diapers or sleeping or even found a few moments to record some own sounds as "nuuk". Music is very important even if I can´t play an instrument or read notes, but the funny thing is, I like this way of "improvising". It is there one moment and the other one it is gone and I am not able to reproduce it. Cool thing of limitation that keeps me going on. »
