any tips for music to listen to while writing?
Generally not. I used to take the Stephen King approach and write while taking stims and listening to rock, but I think I do better work with a little white or street noise and sober.
This is what I listen to when writing philosophical contemplations in prose.
Just Selected Ambient Works, right?
Some of his stuff can get a bit too active for general writing. But I fall asleep to Stone in Focus. Great artist, so much variation in his music. Wish that Soundcloud was still there.
OP, I recommend the channel Space Ambient on youtube. Some Bonobo is decently chill, as well as Eastern Sun.
I'll also listen to ambient game soundtracks by Jeremy Soule, anything he touches is relaxing and atmospheric
You sound like that autistic fuck on /ck/ who thinks that every meal you cook, even ramen while by yourself, should be enjoyed at the table with no browsing, no TV, no nothing.
Why does listening to ambient music make you a bad writer? I find myself distracted and antsy in utter silence.
I find ambient shit like some of Tangerine Dream's stuff helps
its no different than being outside and listening to the bustling of people, or trees blowing in the wind, or birds chirping.
>listening to things clouds your imagination because you didnt make the music yourself its borrowed inspiration etc etc
Go with your favourite radio station, I find that if I listen to my own music I get distracted picking songs, but a station that just plays a genre helps by having one less thing to thimk about,
fast enough tempo to write along with the music
Or pretty much any Bill Frisell really.
Good Dog Happy Man is just fantastic.
I often read to the Blade Runner soundtrack while reading. So soothing.
Year ago such threads were quickly dismissed with share of common sense arguments, most common one being that you are intended to read the work as the author presented, not effected by emotive effect any music might give, or other argument that you can't keep properly concentrated on on the book while also listening to music. Now I see all these seemingly unironic(except moonlight sonata one) posts on what music they listen to in a relatively long lasting thread.
What happened to you, lit.
what do you mean unironic? and why do you think that the moonlight sonata post is ironic?
you DO know that OP said writing, not reading, right?
Depends on what I'm write desu.
here are some things though:
Personally when I write I listen to the following artists:
World's End Girlfriend
Acid Mothers Temple
and a bunch of others. Might not all suit your tastes, but I'm sure some of it will.
No music REQUIRES active listening you sperg.
Are you one of those people who is afraid he'll insult the musician or w/e if he doesn't devote his complete attention when listening all the time every time?
