    What are your ArtTunes?

    I've noticed, both for myself and for many other artists, music plays a big role in doing work. To sit down and paint is one thing, but to listen to some kind of music adds a whole seperate dimension to the experience. I guess I'm just curious as to what most of you use to get your creative juices flowing. My personal favorites are as follows:

    -Just about all of the music off sutemos.net (first learned about it off Bengal's site)
    -Pink Ployd (everything before Roger Waters left)
    -Led Zeppelin (especially Presence, III, IV)
    -Ravi Shankar
    -Pixies
    -Velvet Underground
    -Miles Davis
    -John Coltrane
    -Ornette Coleman
    -Eric Dolphy
    -Dexter Gordon
    -Jimi Hendrix (I have a ton of his studio bootlegs)

    Feel free to post your lists, your thoughts on music with regards to art, pictures from your latest colonoscopy, whatever floats your boat.

    I find it best to listen to symphonic pieces, either movie soundtracks or classical pieces.

    But it mostly depends on what I'm drawing, if its an action scene, I put on something powerful and energetic. If its emotional and calm, I put on some emotional and calm music! (surprise!!!)

    Here are some favorites:

    Gladiator,
    Braveheart,
    Lord of the Rings,
    Beethoven's 9th,
    Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (powerful, powerful music)

    I also listen to other music, like Modest Mouse (Float On), Wheezer, Franz Ferdinand (Take Me Out), and sometimes the talk show LoveLine

    Some good taste in music in here haha
    Here are my favorites to listen to when sketching or painting..mostly mellow stuff (in alphabetical order!! because im just that cool):

    The Appleseed Cast
    As Tall As Lions
    Broken Social Scene
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Grandaddy
    Interpol
    Jimmy Eat World
    Minus the Bear
    Pedro the Lion
    Sunny Day Real Estate
    The Wrens

    Haha theres a huge list for you all to not read...
    Its odd that all the music that has been listed so far is, in general, fast-paced "pump up" music, but I try to listen to the exact opposite when im making any sort of art.
    Maybe I'm just some sort of freak.

    anyway here's my playlist
    --limp bizkit
    --babyface
    --musiq
    --dido
    --3 doors down
    --evanescence
    --creed
    --the calling

    Mostly ambient track, or nearly without lyrics on it(just disturb myself), like

    Inade
    Aphex Twin
    Autechre
    Amon Tobin
    Coil
    The Resident
    Lots of OST(from horror movie :d)
    Track taken on many CD(Soulfly, Marilyn Manson, Oomph!, The Gathering).
    It's just to create an ambient where my mind can sink... So I just "see".
