What's the best live performance you've seen this year?
Carolyn: "I really liked this Argentine group called the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet. I was blown away by the energy and loved watching their facial expressions as they played their instruments. The melody of the guitar and deep, seductive cello transported us to a night drinking wine along the cobblestone streets of Buenos Aires!"
What new artists are you totally obsessed with?
Carolyn: "I really like this group called Alt-J from England. You can tell the main singer's voice is really well-trained classically. He's got awesome pitch, but also a very unique sound. I'd classify the group as quirky indie-rock. I'm also really obsessed with M83 ever since I saw them at the Treasure Island Music Festival. I'm a total Francophile, so I'm automatically drawn to them and think they have a beautiful and unique sound."
You guys have amazing snacks, what's your go-to?
Carolyn: "I love Kind bars, avocados, hummus, and hot chocolate."
Everyone in the office seems really fun, what's the wackiest thing that someone has done on the job?
Carolyn: "A prominent member of our sales department dressed up as 'Snow White Trash' on Halloween and wore a wig, a dress, and a fake baby bump. It was really hilarious and unexpected. The audio team is known for playing constant jokes on one another. When one of their teammates is out on vacation, they'll decorate their desk with strange childhood pictures and unusual food items. Once they even wrapped a guy's entire desk and chair in wrapping paper."
