do you ever read while listening music?
what kind of music do you listen to while reading?
I never have done it, but i have thought of doing it. Sometimes there's so much god damn noise in my house i can't focus.
I feel like the music could be more distracting to me though. I'd rather listen to nature noises.
Something without words, so the language part of my brain can focus on the words on the page. Field recordings of ponds at night and nighttime forest sounds are nice, but that's not really music.
I do often. In fact with certain novels I listen to certain albums. I mostly listen to ambient music while reading, and sometimes some Grouper.
Right now I'm reading Germinal by Zola and I've been listening to Die Festung - Paysage d'Hiver. The cold feeling of the album is cool to read along to the book with.
You're missing out.
>Brian Eno Ambient 1
>Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
>Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid
>Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville
Fantastic combinations. I can't read/study to music with lyrics.
I find it really hard to concentrate on reading when there's music on, It just fucks with my brain. unless it's very unintrusive ambient stuff like Aphex Twin's ambient works ii or the like.
