Inspiring music?
« on: November 07, 2006, 04:56:07 pm »
Like LionNinja recently asked me, "Aurin, so you like visual stuff?" Betcha sweet ass I do. I don't know how many of you guys & gals take an interest in some creative action, maybe some of you like painting like me, perhaps you're musicians yourself or maybe you like to write stories or poems... whatever.
What I'd like to ask is, does music ever insipire you in your work? If not, why? And if it does, what kind of music or which bands? You could also possibly have a favourite track or lyrics you keep close to your heart, what is it?

Myself I'm totally musically unskilled, but as numerous MaSu's songs, music gives me sometimes very strong "vibes" that make me feel almost utterly visually creative. Sonata Arctica, Wintersun, Mew, ambient music...
I hope I didn't end up sounding too weird, but if you know the feeling of as if everything was rushing into your head at once... You should know what I'm talking about. ;P

And I'm sorry if something as kind-of-lame and such basic as this was posted sometime in the near past, I was just wondering.

Yeah music has kept me from insanity for many years but also drove me to it at one point in my life, those were dark days indeed... now a days i listen to very ambient stuff to help me relax, rock to give me an upbeat feeeling in my soul and 'Stomp' music to get me geared up for a night out (good example of 'stomp' music is PowerMan 5000)
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

AND THIS IS WHAT ITS LIKE WHEN WORLDS COLIDEEEE!

Music gets me inspired and motivated sometimes, It depends what mood i'm in when I listen to it, And also what drugs i'm on.

Anything classical or instrumental works a treat.

I can't write a thing without some ambient music. Kinda makes exams tricky.

(ii) Live well under your own authority.
(iii) Abolishing suffering is impossible. Lessening suffering is mandatory.

There are lots of creative things I want to do, but I don't excel much at any of them.

On the other hand, music pretty much controls my life and the state of my mind. Of course, I control what music I listen to, so hah. Music that works this way is my favorite kind, and I always look for it. I generally group music after how they "feel" and not genre or anything else.

I write badly. I listen to music while writing.

I can only write when inspiration hits, and usually I get hit by inspiration when I can't write.
