Music to Write By….

My tastes in music are pretty much on the gothic/industrial/punk/neo-medieval/ambient side–a lot of older stuff, and some intriguing new-to-me bands I’ve been introduced to, like VAST (They’ve a new album released/coming out this year, I believe).

My music is generally separated by usage rather than genre: music to drive with, music to dream by, music to clean to, and, of course, music to write by. I rely on ambient music to inspire the writerly muse; especially movie and video game soundtracks.

Here’s a list of ambient/classical-ish favs that I write by:

Myst: Exile Soundtrack
Harry Potter Soundtracks (Philosopher’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Half-Blood Prince, Deathly Hallows 1&2)
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Soundtrack
Nadja Soundtrack
Halo Trilogy Soundtracks
The Island of Dr. Moreau Soundtrack
The Fifth Element Soundtrack
Amber Asylum
Raison d’etre
Cast in Bronze

What’s your favourite music that inspires your writing, or art? Let me know in the comments, if you want!
