When I'm working I prefer quiet though.


I can be that way a lot too. Sometimes sound just ends up distracting me and I have to keep everything quiet.

I like to listen to soundscapes channel mostly when I do work, but sometimes I'll listen to H.I.M. or to AFI, Evanesence. They really speak to me lyric and music wise. but the song I keep playing over and over right now is Funeral of hearts by HIM. Great great song.

Enya

Postby Carmelo » Wed Dec 12, 2007 10:51 pm

I'm way into Eyna Erika, lately I've been into native american flute music played by Evan Ozan, and others. Also trying to find some music by a group, "Faun" I believe they are into a German style of Medieval folk rock. Wagner is good in the instrumental realm and Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber.

I love this music, so relaxing and moving.

I'm not sure of what Enya is...My husband enjoys listening to the Native American flutes though, things like that are enjoyable....very relaxing. Makes you want to sink into a warm bathtub full of bubbles and lock the door.

Enya I think is the best selling female singer of all time. I'm sure you heard her some of her songs before. Her music is heavily influenced by traditional Celtic music, but it's still contemporary. She's done numerous sondtracks (the haunting music of Lord of the Rings), her most popular songs include 'Sail Away', 'Orinoco Flow', 'Only Time' t oname a few. Her website lists some samples; check out the Music Room.

Oh, so many artists, so little time. I love most music but my absolute favorite piece is "Homecoming" by Accoustic Alchemy.

2AM by Anna Nalick has been running through my head a lot lately, I think because it is such a challenging song. Bobby McFerrin finds his way in there quite a bit too: "Baby" and "Freedom is a Voice" mostly. Of course "Lullaby" by Amy White/Al Petteway is one my head uses to sing me to sleep every night... a special one for me and my daughter.

Enya is also a favorite of mine for working. Vivaldi sometimes... various celtic music every once in a while... Accoustic Alchemy gets the most air time in the studio though.

Well, it depends on my mood. I listen to metal (which, it might drive me nuts if I am drawing certain things that stress me out), or I'm listening to rap, some softer rock songs, or maybe techno or classical. It depends.

The only time I can't listen to a certian thing is if I am drawing a guy form a band and then listening to the same band he is in. I can't do that. Such as, if I am drawing Ozzy Osbourne, I cannot listen to Black Sabbath or his solo records for some reason. Otherwise, I can listen to anything else.

Hmm... Music to work to?

Personally I can't work without music and I'm also a bit of a music mongrel :wink:

At the moment I'm listening to Ministry of Sound's "Classic Trance Nation", before that was Gorillaz "Demon Days" and coming next might be Portishead "Dummy" or maybe Nina Simone. I love her version of "Mr Bojangles" :)

I agree with DrSirDrawsALot - my choice in what I listen to depends on the mood I'm in. And it can also affect my work. I was listening to Demon Days when I painted Dragon Head... take from that what you will :shock:

I am :D

I loved both the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I was seriously upset when they killed Smaug at the end of the hobbit. He was my favourite character!

I also read the Silmarillion which told the history of Middle Earth. It was ok... had Dragons in it but was a bit too remote for my liking.

Cool image :D

Andy Serkis did a
illiant Gollum in the films - creepy and forlorn at the same time.

His name is Christopher Tolkien, I think and I would have liked to see it. I didnt know he was artistic as well.

For Tolkienesque art, I found John Howe's work is really good. He's got a website I think. Brilliant Dragons.... wish I could do so well :(

Thanks, it's one of my favourites. Wish I could get a better photo of it though. The background keeps reflecting light back into the camera and until I get a decent photoshop package, theres not much I can do about it :(

Will post more monstrous Dragons when complete :D
