    Instrumental Music

    Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by Mr_Frugal, May 27, 2017.

    Hi

    I can't write listening to music with words so I listen to a lot of instrumental music. Do people have any suggestions?

    It can be anything from Post Rock to IDM and D&B.

    This is what I've been writing to:

    Hi. I too listen to instrumental music when I write. The longer and more epic sounding the better. When I am writing something sad I purposely play the saddest songs I can find as well. It really helps get the juices flowing and quiets the things that threaten to derail my desired train of thought.

    I know I'm a little late on this one, but check out "millennium" by hans Zimmer, it's fantastic!!!

    My favorites are early Michael Oldfield, before he turned to Euro-pop: Tubular Bells, Ommadawn, and Hergest Ridge.

    And Jean-Michel Jarre's Oxygène and Équinoxe, if you like electronic music.

    I also can't write to music with lyrics. I listen to Danny Elfman (he did the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack), Bruno Coulais' Coraline soundtrack, and Ludovico Einaudi. I also enjoy writing to Dario Marianelli, another great composer.

    These threads are like daises...:D

    Lyrics, no lyrics, no problema.;)
    Since I have chosen a more aggressive theme for
    my duology, I have to suck it up for the sake of
    keeping mood and tone.
    That is not to say I don't find the lighter side
    enjoyable. Between two playlists I have a massive
    selection to choose from.
    But since lyrics are not your fortay, I would recommend
    Adrian von Ziegler's channel, the guy covers all genres. :)

    Though I will post a piece from someone else. :p

    Me, too! (But usually when I'm on the road doing long-distance driving). Nightmare does have some lyricis, though ... and very good ones, I might add.

    You might get some insight into the people I hang with when I tell you about a young friend of mine. When she was in pre-school, she was asked what her favorite Christmas carol was. "Kidnap the Sandy Claws!" she replied.

    Every type of music is too distracting for me while I am writing, but before to set the mood is fine.
