View Full Version : Music genre you find best it to create by!

03-04-2004, 03:03 PM
Offbeat sub here for all you heavywavers- yong or old, pickled or non, seasoned or plain, hobbyist or jaded veteran alike, earthlike or martian... What music genre, in sum total, do you find it best to create your masterpieces by-

Hmmm...are we tickled in the right brain with Mozart? or does our logitical side get steamed up with Petra? Or... do the polygons fly to a Jamaican tune recorded on a sunny seaside?

What about classical?

All that stuff up there will rot your brain. :p

dito classical shoud be up there that is what I lisen to or the radio in general (Radio 1 in the UK my current fav)

Hey air-breathers- my bad! I just asked Proton if he could add Classical as a genre. I am a classical listener as well. Though I prefer my classical music nestled in a sensational sandwich of Mars Landing with some Joyce Cooling on the side with a nice brew of some international tones like some lovely Latin or airy Asian.

Feh! Classical all the way, baby. Fix that and I shall vote in the poll! :D

Seriously, classical because it pleasing to listen to, yet fades into the background enough to not distract me from the work at hand.Well, either that or some good 80s, and I mean REAL 80s music, as in "New Order" type stuff, not that "Katrina and the Waves" crap.

03-04-2004, 04:15 PM
Classical is what i'd go for as well. It's normally that or no doubt or they might be giants.

03-04-2004, 04:26 PM
For me, CG ...rocks !

No, really :)


03-04-2004, 04:50 PM
I would vote for classical too.

I usually don't listen to any music while I work, but I'm having a problem with noise coming from the water meter in the next room. So, I've been listening to the local classical radio station. It not only blocks the noise, but I'm actually finding it helpful work-wise. I may continue to listen to it -- even after I get the meter fixed.

03-04-2004, 05:14 PM
No music...a noisy water meter...what do we have here?

03-04-2004, 05:43 PM
Radio 4:
Gardeners Question time, The Archers, and all the wonderful things that spew forth from auntie beeb during the day.....ahhh bliss.

Music is fer gurls.

03-04-2004, 06:10 PM
Music, Huge member, is definitely for gurls but you did furget to mentun that it is fur guys as well. By the way we all love dreamers here.

The musical members of the wave of light may dance rings around members that dance to no tone. Though no tones can grow the potential stone in the wave of light the musically inclined mind can bind this binary beast of light and all his might to facilitate the ultimate.

I like a good mix of Techno, gothic, and rap. And Radiohead.

03-04-2004, 09:03 PM
Hrgiger- the only problem with that mixture of tonal delight is the fact that it doesn't need to be rendered to be truly caustic. That combo would probably melt my very tender ear canal into a gelatinous mess of useless flesh.

But I guess the wave of light accepts all who wander into its wonderful gamma, even those amoung us who actually listen to Radiohead and their lullabies.

03-04-2004, 09:22 PM
Movie soundtracks, what else? :p


03-04-2004, 10:58 PM
Metal/Rock baby!!! Chevelle/Tool/Drege/NIN/Radiohead/SOAD etc... etc...

03-04-2004, 11:14 PM
I dont like listen music while I am on LW, makes me veeeeeryyy nervous.... he he...:p

03-05-2004, 12:16 AM
Well on my CD changer I keep it full of Cusco and ABBA

What ones do I check for them??

R. Williams, The Animator`s Survival Kit
"Milt, do you ever listen to classical music while you're working?"

"Of all the stupid goddamned questions I've ever heard I never heard such a stupid question! I am not smart enough to think of more than one thing at a time!". ;)
No, seriously, slight drum n base, classical tracks or film scores.

I prefer music that I haven't heard before, e.g. listen to a jazz radio station. If I was listening to my favourite music I would be humming along or start dreaming but would not work very efficiently. During my last project (www.themarcside.com/missouri.html) I was so under stress and had to concentrate so much that I found any kind of music very distracting.


03-05-2004, 07:26 AM
I don't listen to anything when I animate; I concentrate better that way.

03-05-2004, 07:53 AM
I had some great passion for Mahler , Mozart and other classical music when drawing, or modelling. in other periods i listened to Pantera, Faith no more, Sepultura, Mr Bungle and more thrash metal music. In other periods, i listened to no music. It depends from how i feel, what i am going to do, etc.
Actually i love music of different types except country and celtic

Usually,music with no songs and words helps to concentration/inspiration sometimes, while music with songs, distracts me , since i like songs too much i get involved. I also love to sing some times while i'm modelling!!!!! at the starting for sure. then, i go mute when things need some concentration. :D

Hey, recently i listened to Dark side of the moon and did some drawings related to this masterpiece.

very inspiring.

Definitely Radiohead...they should have a class all to themselves!

03-05-2004, 12:49 PM
I listen to Lord Of The Rings soundtracks and the soundtrack to games such as Soul Calibur 2 (very movie soundtrack-ish; I wonder if they will ever do a proper orchestral performance of this music)

Some techno as well, though I prefer older stuff like the music for Wipeout XL on the Playstation...

And yes, Classical as well.

03-05-2004, 12:57 PM
I'd go for soundtracks - stuff like Gladiator, The Mission, Lord of the Rings, etc.

Or I listen to the news...

03-05-2004, 01:04 PM
House, trance and generally what some of you here will call rot your brain music. Listening to the essential mix or other recorded dance programs from the bbc website via realplayer helps me model the day away. Listening to Jazz is better for animatiing. :D

03-05-2004, 02:17 PM
I voted for trance/electronica. I also listen to metal/rock on daily basis and some jazz/funk.
While I work I like "electronica" the most. Under this term (for lack of other categories here) I assume stuff that ranges from enigma/delerium to FLA/wumpscut and everything in between.

03-05-2004, 02:41 PM
Movie soundtracks, TV series soundtracks, or classical. Gladiator is one of my favorites, as it flows really well from start to finish. Great for when you get into one of those LW grooves.
