Just a quick brain spew. What music do you write to? What gets your creative juices flowing above the tide mark?
I anchor my music with the James Bond theme music before I start a session. From time to time I need to block out background noise or just sledge hammer my brain into working Soviet style.
I find the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack is a great mood piece. I can always write something with that filling my ears. Occassionally I’ll use haunting music and match it to a haunting scene as well to compliment the genre, or something more upbeat for a cheerier section. I don’t know about you but I can’t write if the music has words in it, it totally disrupts my concentration.
What’s your audio zimmer frame when struggling (or not) to write?
