What kind of music do you listen while mapping?
I was making a playlist for when i return to do maps (next week, gotta do more realms for Erdan and slowly working on a regional style), so what´s yours? Which kind of music do you prefer to listen when you´re creating things?
Personally i tend to create playlists depending on what i do:
Sports: some energy music, usually rock but also pop rock or some old good 80s hits
Driving: mostly classic rock (50s, 60s,70s), jazz, blues, swing, doo wop, sometimes 80s rock. Sometimes classic music, opera and zarzuela but that´s only when driving with work mates.
At home: i´m totally eclectic: i like so many genres that it wouldn´t be fair for you all to read them all haha. Except drap and hiphop i mostly listen everything and i mean EVERYTHING. I love newage, folk, metal in different branches, ... let´s leave it there...
And the important thing here: while i draw maps.
Mostly i like something that makes my imagination free, and also brings me a calm state. My favourite playsongs are from Loreena Mckennit, my favourite singer, and then David Arkenstone (mostly In the Wake of the Wind trilogy but also some other jobs with Kostia and more), Two Steps from Hell, Dvorak and Hendel. Also some piano jobs from Gershwin, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Schoenberg...
What´s your mapping music then?
