When I’m working on a task like web design or blogging, I always turn to music to provide inspiration for creativity. The genres I find myself turning to depend on what kind of work I’m producing.
For example, I turn to hard rock or heavy metal when I’m working on something edgy. I immerse myself in action movie scores when I need to set a tone of epic proportions. Pop music for hip and modern, electronica for futuristic and experimental, and the list goes on.
I’m into a number of artists, but most recently, I’ve gotten into the latest from Michael Giacchino (who composed the score for the new Star Trek movie), Halestorm, Lacuna Coil, Linkin Park‘s New Divide, and the Battlefield single from Jordin Sparks. Even though they’re not as recent, Bullet For My Valentine‘s Scream Aim Fire and In This Moment‘s The Dream still rotate in my playlists.
Do you also use music as inspiration? If so, who do you usually listen to? If not, what do you use?
