    Favorite Drawing Music?

    I'm sure there's a thread just like this somewhere, in fact I know there are, but I'd like to bring it up again. What are some tunes you guys like to have playing while you're hard at work? I'll start us off:

    My playlist consists of movie soundtracks, mostly. The kind of movies I love all have lots of original music.

    Lately I've also been listening to tunes from THIS game in particular:

    I'm really interested in seeing, or hearing, what you guys listen to. I PROMISE I won't lose my mind if you like Radiohead.

    I really like drawing with Philip Glass on.
    But I also listen to a lot of indie folk stuff and Jedi Mind Tricks

    I like to combine theta or gamma state binaural waves, nature sounds, and non-lyrical music of all kinds.

    Some handy links for helping maintain focus during long study sessions:

    I have eclectic tastes in music so I go from Motorhead to Bowie to Edith Piaf. After a certain time, I don't actually hear the music as I'm concentrating on the art.

    I usually have the TV on when I'm painting or drawing. It usually one of the PBS stations though, my favorite is the one showing the cooking/art/crafting shows. Although the station that shows 5 hours of Star Trek comes in a close second. I usually listen to music before going to sleep (the classical station, what a cliche *lol*) in hopes of planting some ideas in my subconscious. Not sure it's worked, though.

    I haven't watched PBS, or TV for that matter, in so long. Not because I don't have access to it, I just kinda stopped one day after getting my own desktop. Weird question, is Arthur still ongoing, or does it play reruns?

    Jedi mind tricks is a underground hiphop group from Philadelphia. My favorite album is Army of the Pharaohs. Check out this track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlZgiK6FiO0

    My connection at home is too slow for streaming so TV is all I have (no cable either, too expensive). I think they are still making new episodes of Arthur. When I do happen to listen to music while working it's usually soundtracks, sometimes the classical station. I blame Star Trek for getting me into the classical stuff (Brahms String Sextet on ST:TNG was my gateway drug, lol).
