What is your favorite song to listen to when writing novels or poems or whatever? I prefer anything classical, but right now I have "green bird" from cowboy bebop playing, anyone have an recommendations? Preferably piano and violin heavy.
If anyone wants an invite to a site that gives you free stuff I got's it:
Pink Floyd, "Atom Heart Mother."
The song features an orchestra but also blends in Blues (C bebop) and some Prog Rock. It is cacophonous and hard to digest, and also rather long (26 minutes), but it is an awesome track. Make sure you turn it up.
Giving out writing reviews to anyone who wants them (exception: poems. I'll find you).
It depends on what I'm writing, to be honest. Sometimes, I just skip through swathes on shuffle, until I find something befitting. If I'm doing fast paced stuff, I choose hard rock / metal, but if I'm after calming stuff, then I've got other genres, that suit better. Some classical, some country, perhaps even a bit of ska.
I listen to anything lyric-less. So classical, movie soundtracks and electronica. I listen to whatever corresponds with the emotion I'm trying to convey. Action sequences require something dramatic, like a requiem (along the lines of songs like O Fortuna). One of my favorite contemporary songs is the Red Cape Tango. Aside from Michael Daugherty being an utter genius, the drama of the piece is perfect for face offs. If you're not familiar, it's from the Metropolis Symphony and is about Superman's face off with Doomsday; simply amazing.
Sorry, I digress. In my experience the best type of music to listen to while writing is music that is not only emotionally charged, but also lyric-less. I emphasize it being lyric-less because the words throw me off. I have a harder time blocking the music out when I need to, and isolating a certain emotion or thought, when someone is singing or rapping. Sometimes the words creep in and I type it out, disrupting my flow. Latin, on the other hand, is okay, because it's just noise to me.
Duel of the Fates is also another recommendation for dramatic music. But, I mean, duh right?
Well, in my case, mostly Mago de Oz helps me a lot... they have great lyrics
Anyway, i try to find music that matches the kind of style i want it to have...
I just put on YouTube playlists like smash bros playlists...
But idk I usually just end up watching YouTube poops instead! XD
I'm not high, im just on cafine, adrenaline rush, and/or have a "rocket" in my pocket!
Alquin - The dance
Infected Mushroom - Bust A Move (Infected Remix)
Infected Mushroom - The Gathering
Syphonmax - 3 Hours To Midnight*
System F - Solstice
*Also found on the audio portal.
The dance is a '70s song from the Dutch group Alquin, 13 minutes of awesomeness;
IM - Bust a move and IM - The gathering are Psytrance songs, if you're into that;
Syphonmax - 3hrs to midnight is trance, my personal favourite;
System F - Solstice is a strong, energetic song, good for fights, IMO.
Enjoy your writing.
I like Apocalyptica and other classical/metal mixes. But really anything without words is good for me. I sometimes listen to death metal while I write because the words are unintelligible.
