Just thought this would be an interesting topic.
Mostly Jazz, but I also love JazzGrooveShredaFunk / fusion, aka Adam Nitti.
If I’m doing things that have words (coding, writing a paper, etc), then I like music w/o (English) words:
- Tangerine Dream
- Klaus Schulze
- Frederic Chopin
- Beethoven Piano Sonatas
- Other mellow classical music
If I need a bit more energy for writing or am working on graphics stuff, J-Rock and J-Pop work nicely:
- Wagakki Band
For just doing graphics work then pretty much anything works, even old country music.
Here’s one of my favorite Adam Nitti songs.
Very progressive use of syncopated unison between several of the instruments.
Adam is the Italian playing the 6-string blue bass guitar.
His modal style of playing really comes out during his solo.
That was so good!
This couple from Poland do their own arrangements of classical pieces and play so beautifully together.
Another master on my list that I keep tabs on. 109M Views, I guess he’s on the lists of a few others also He does a great version of Bitter Sweet, but this one is Viva La Vida.
I love the sound of Metallica in morning, “Sad, but True”
These guys, The HU, are pretty good. I listed to a few others they’ve made and they have a very unique sound for sure.
Edit : Mind you, I don’t understand a word they are saying most of the time (all) but it sounds good
I like Mozart while coding
3 favorites albums : Dark Side, Meddle & wish you were here.
Dark Side is really stunning helping me out during a debugging session
+1 for Wish you were Here
