Writer's Block: Music for Thought

When you have to study or get work done, what music (if any) do you put on to help you concentrate?


It's funny this question is up here, because i decided today that from now on, when i post my art, i will post what music i was listening to while painting, because the music is part of the process.

So to start, this untitled painting from today was done while listening to Dinosaur Jr. "Where You Been" (side one)on cassette and Patti Smith "Easter" on CD.



and to answer the question, i listen to all kinds of music to be inspired, but if i am trying to read something important, i turn the music off because i can't concentrate with it on. that is pretty much the only time the music or tv is off. i use music to help drown out intrusive thoughts. i use music for a lot of things.
