A Hacker's Playlist

Nine security researchers share their favorite songs and genres.

Lesley Carhart: Sophisticated Lady
Music has been flowing through Lesley Carhart's veins since she was about 5 years old. Today, she works as director of threat research at Dragos, but during her early years, Carhart's opera singer mother pushed her to learn the violin and become good enough to play in competitions. 
'My mother wanted me to be a classical violinist, but I was not interested in the instrument or that style of music,' Carhart says. 'I don't play anymore. People don't always realize what it take to be that good at an instrument. It takes a lot of dedication, and you have to practice, practice, practice.'
Carhart credits her father for introducing her to other styles of music. He was always sneaking in listening sessions of Pink Floyd and the Alan Parson Project, she says.
After high school Carhart went into the Air Force, where she volunteered to learn about electronics. After her stint in the military, she went to college at DePaul and studied computers.
Today, her favorite hacking music includes symphonic electronica, hip-hop and rap, and opera.
