Music!


Do you listen to music while you're writing? What do you use for your current WriMo project?

I'm obsessively listening to The World Ends With You OST (that's a Nintendo DS RPG, for those who are wondering). 8-)




Novel synopsis:

\"Elliott is teenager growing up in a fictional, futuristic fascist state, where war and soldiering are glorified, and where dissidents and criminals are sent to reeducation camps for torture and brainwashing. Aware of his own homosexuality, for which he doesn\'t even have a name except for Criminal against Nature and Nation, Elliott runs away from his small-town home to the City. He\'s heard through illegal Network data that there are clandestine gangs of youth like him providing each other with care, love, and foster, and he travels there in the wild hope of living more than shame, terror, and loneliness.

It\'s a dark and scary, warm and smutty tale of rebellion of those who lust for freedom and each other, pitted against those whose only high is to reduce others to powerlessness. \"

Oh yeah! Greatest Hits 2-disc collection from Aerosmith, some Train, lots of classical piano...whatever I'm in the mood for.

Well, if I'm writing at work, I'm listening to this awesome rock station out of Philadelphia that mixes classical (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush) with today's hits (Puddle Of Mudd, Disturbed, Linkin Park, etc). If I'm at home, I listen mostly to Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies, and mixes I've gotten from friends on Livejournal.

Unless I'm writing porn. Then I have very specific musical requirements. :P

Yes yes!
For this novel, I almost only strictly listen to Hungry Lucy. Everything about them is like my novel.. the style, sound, lyrics, everything. Although I have the funny feeling that the more I listened to them while writing, the more THEIR style became infused in MY novel, so really... parts of my novel were influenced by their music. But it's all good... a lot of it just happened to go with my story. It's a good symbiotic structure, or whatever you'd call that. Oh blah.

I understand exactly what you mean. I have to be careful about the music I choose because it mingles with my writing, and the wrong musical inspiration just messes things up. When I have a good track going, though, I like letting it me take in new directions.

Mostly been listening to two types of music through Pandora:

Dragonforce, Hammerfall, Kamelot, Edguy, Elvenking
(I find the heavy metal and harmonics help me type faster)

Classical music akin to the 1812 Overture (Like the World of Warcraft::Burning Crusade soundtrack and LotR soundtracks depending on what is happening in my story)

I listen to a mix and it really have very little to do with my story.

Today its been mostly Cecilia Baritoli and Bryn Terfel on their "Duets" CD and Bryn Terfels "Opera Arias" CD. I've stuck a little bit of Detlef Roth from a french production of The Magic Flute on the play list though.

Last week I was listening to my new Gaelic Storm CD. Its a good CD, not as good as their other ones but still good.

Of coarse once in a while I get bored with my other stuff and turn on my classical play list. It's got the Lawrence of Arabia sound track, Colonel Bogey March, 1812 overture, some Beethoven, a little Wagner, Bizet, and Rossini overtures, and a butt load of Mozart (Eine kleine Nachtmusik ROCKS!)

*suddenly realizes she doesn't have ANY Verdi on her computer* *goes to remedy that*

That was my recital song senior year. It was a duet, and I had to play with my teacher because none of the other sax players were good enough to play the second part.

I can play the first five bars of it on my keyboard. It took me three days to get it right at a decent speed. For as simple as it looks it is a hard piece. I can totally see people having issues play it.

I played it as a duet w/ this other piano player at Crane Youth Music (Band camp!). He got a little too nervous. It's kind of disappointing, because I played the secondo, which is boring except for one little line that Mozart put in there. I never was too fond of Mozart's music. I prefer much more modern, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Ravel, that kind of thing. Right now, I'm learning Mozart's Sonata K.280 for college. I'm going to look for the Twinkle Variations right now. I want to learn them!!!

Oh, sounds like fun! I wouldn't mind learning to play more modern pieces but my Dad is a big classical fan and since he helped me pay for some of my keyboard things I figured that I should be able to pay him some stuff.
