What I listen to when I create Faminelands

Like many artists and authors, I listen to music while I am working. I cannot listen while I am editing or talking to my characters, but every other step is set to music. I also find sometimes when I want to write a specific scene sometimes music that has the same feeling helps me write.

Sometimes I just listen to The Bravery Station on Pandora.

Now when I am coloring, I need faster music. Yet something with a story. I listen to Billy Idol Cyber Punk and his self titled album, Deltron 30,30 Juno Reactor quite a bit.

Now when I am lettering, I need soft music. And it is genera specific. Since Faminelands is fantasy, I need ambient techno such as Single Cell Orchestra. or I need celtic music such as  Clannad or Talizman They are a local band that I heard at Folk Life Festival.

I know others like music when they are working, what do you listen to?

  1. This will probably sound a little strange, but under no circumstances can i listen to music when i write. I find that it distracts me too much and before i know it, i’ve written the song lyrics down on the page!

    I do often find that music can inspire me though 🙂

  2. I can’t listen to music with words while I am writing or I will end up typing what I am singing along with:) Kudos to you though for having the skill to be a talented multi-tasker!

    • Interesting that neither of you listen to music. Actually one of the reasons I listen to music when I write is to block out other sounds. I live in a large apartment building in the city. People slam doors, dogs bark, landscapers work outside my window, firetrucks, police cars, etc. The music is a wall so I can ignore other things!
      Thanks for commenting!

  3. I can’t work with something going on. I listen to the sound of silence. Maybe if I were coloring, but not otherwise.
