    The Official "What do You Listen to While You Draw?!" Thread!

    I'm just curious...

    For me, it rotates between Millencollin, The Streets, MC Chris, listening to HGTV or the Food Network since that's the only channels we get...

    Your turn!

    I have a rather ridiculously extensive and varied MP3 playlist (and yes, I own the majority of them on CD!).

    I always have my music on in the background regardless of modelling, texturing, drawing, painting or playing games. In the space of an hour it's likely that I'll have listened to a range of anything from Rage Against the Machine to Rachmaninov, via The Killers, Radiohead, Steely Dan, Metallica, Grandaddy, Pink Floyd, A Perfect Circle, The Kinks, Simon & Garfunkel... the list could go on for many pages, but it would be pointless.

    If I started my playlist from the very beginning and let it run through all the songs, it would be 17 days before it reached the last track. Tasty!

    All depends on what I wanna draw ^_^
    My playlist is usually about 50% of OC remixes (Video Game remixes)
    and the rest goes from Beck to Daft punk and anything inbetween...sept country...usually just draw what the song plants in my head for practice.

    Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

    but musically, lately-
    the streets
    del
    aesop rock
    handsome boy modeling school
    the clash
    the misfits
    hope conspiracy
    slayer
    iron maiden
    converge
    the jam
    the pogues

    just random shit... my musical moods vary quite a bit when i'm feeling creative.

    Sometimes also a bit louder stuff (metal or more aggressive punk).

    favorite bands while drawing are at the moment:
    EST
    Ska-P
    Rantanplan
    Terrorgruppe
    System of a Down
    Rancid

    All of AFI
    The Nerve Agents
    Flogging Molly

    A slew of bands on Tooth & Nail and SolidState records.

    otep
    marilyn manson
    korn
    limp bizkit

    and if i don't listen to that i listen to whatever is on my pc or sometimes knac.com

    sometimes i also enjoy a good classical cd (beethoven), destiny's child(esp.kelly rowland),sugababes or some jazz.

    Lately - Been listening to a wierd mix while I work

    Usually starts with some badass Prefuse 73 -
    then chill out with some badass composer like Steve Reich or Phillip Glass
    then pump it up with some Buzzcocks or Motorhead
    then mix in some Fourtet...quite a talent
    Then perhaps I'll treat the audio to some Squarepusher or AphexTwin

    Iron Maiden yes!!

    normally I don't listen to music, it's sort of a distraction to me sometimes. If it's quietand in the background then it's ok. I like lounge/soft house/jazz. obscure rock bands.

    Someone once told be that the ultimate abstract art is music which is purely instrumental. I came to find out that some of my best ideas come from music that influences me in a manner other than literally. Thus, I try to listen to music that is more melodic, if not entirely without lyrics.

    Some of my favorites include:
    Godspeed You Black Emperor
    Mogwai
    Sigur Ros (Lyrics often unintelligible due to either language, or the volume at which they are sung. Also, lead singers' voice becomes an instrument of it's own, moreso than an vocal overlay on the music)
    M83
    Juno Reactor
    Doves
    Depeche Mode
    Kenna
    The Crystal Method
    The Chemical Brothers
    Requiem For a Dream OST (incl. remix album)
    MGS 2 OST
    Halo (1 & 2) OST
    Brian Eno
    Daft Punk

    Of course, there are a ton of other bands that I have in my playlist that see some airtime pretty frequently. Some of them are:
    The Streets
    Cake
    Snow Patrol
    Spiritualized
    Hooverphonic
    Outkast
    Arcade Fire
    LCD Soundsystem
    Jedi Mind Tricks
    David Gray
    Dntel
    The Postal Service
    The Faint
    Interpol
    Frou Frou
    Jimmy Eat World
    Morrissey
    NIN
    Radiohead
    Zutons
    Wyclef Jean
    Royksopp

    -and of course-

    William Shatner

    Off the top of my head:

    Buzzcocks
    Violent Femmes
    Pixies
    Led Zeppelin (especially IV)
    Radiohead
    Mos Def
    Beastie Boys
    Tribe Called Quest
    Weezer (first two albums)
    Amon Tobin
    Neutral Milk Hotel (this makes the dogs next door howl - much to the amusement of my girlfriend)
    The Go Team!
    Walkmen
    DJ Shadow
    RJD2
    Philip Glass
    Beatles
    White Stripes
    The Shins

    Of today's up and coming popular beat combos I think Kaiser Chiefs are pretty good. And the Chris Morris Radio 1 shows from 94 are a goldmine of good music and anarchic comedy (tm). But The Streets? That right there is the emperor's new clothes for me.
