I find when i'm writing a very emotional tragic scene that songs like Blackout and soldier poem by Muse help me.

Recently i've been listening to the bande 'Halves' which is really mad mix of classical and retro sound.

I just listened to some of Halves stuff, and it's really good! I like it!

When I'm writing I love to listen to instrumental music. Especially piano instrumentals.
One of my favorite bands to listen to while I'm writing is Evanescence. Their music is so inspirational and lyrical.

I listen to extremely varied things while writing. Like I said in my introduction, everything from movie soundtracks to Enya to Slayer. I wrote a very very very super intense scene last night involving my main character's brother being tortured in Hell (dude, my mind comes up with very disturbing things sometimes) and I went through file after file after file on my computer until I found songs that fit. There was a lot of Slayer for that scene, some Static X and a Nightwish song or two. It was so intense.
I find that I am very influenced by what I'm listening to when I am in the middle of an intense scene -- or even a not-so-intense scene -- and it's almost a requirement that I have the perfect soundtrack.

I'm the same nove, its amazing how influential the right piece of music is. I actually have my playlists sorted by 'emotions' now with sad songs like snowpatrol, coldplay, halves grouped together and 'action' songs like MUSE and Linkin park or Radiohead together. Very Happy

Yeah, WT and Ev are amazing. Especially when they work together! Nightwish and Lacuna Coil are another amazing pairing. It's that kind of music, plus coffee and sheer insanity, that fuel my work.

Yeah, I've ben a huge fan of Evanescence forever! They are so good! I like some stuff by Lacuna Coil but I've never heard of Nightwish. What's your favorite song by them, so I could look it up?

I'd have to say that my absolute favorite Nightwish song is Slaying the Dreamer. I also LOVE Amaranth.

Hmm, they're pretty good. I like the guitar in Slaying the Dreamer. And they have some interesting music videos.

Nightwish does have some pretty interesting music vids...They're AWESOME.

Hm. I was talking to my friend Josh yesterday, and I mentioned that I had been listening to the song Angels by Within Temptation. I made a comment about just how relevant it was to The Enigma and how I didn't realize just how relevant it was when I put it on the playlist.

I said, "Take, for example, the lyric 'the smile when you tore me apart.' That is just so...fitting. You know?"

"I don't think it means literally, though," he told me.

"Yeah, but in this case it IS!"

"People get torn apart in your book! Oh my God, you *have* to let me read it! Right now!"

Hahaha. I think that if I hadn't had my notebook in my bag he would have stolen it right there. Smile

There are a few groups I listen to while writing, mostly because it helps me think later while I'm driving in the car or working around the house. I can have the music on in the background and immediately be thinking of where I am in the story. It helps a ton!

As for actually writing music...I'm originally a musician (a flutist) and have actually written quite a few pieces and arranged some as well. All are instrumental. But my favorite was an orchestral piece that I wrote after having a dream about it when I was about 13. I still have it and hope to one day fine tune it and get it published.

I wrote a piece for piano inspired by The Surface of the Deep. It's nothing amazing, but still. I'm working on another one, too. Smile

Perhaps I shall. I'll finish the song I'm working on and tweak the other one (I played it in piano class today and it sounded a little off) and then see if I can get them up on YouTube. Smile

I do the same thing SD...I get Josh Groban on for romantic or sad scenes, Within Temptation, Muse, and Skillet for fight scenes and Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra for fun happy scenes. I love how music can really just change your mood that you're writing with.

I've been listening to a lot of heavier stuff while writing lately, even for low-intensity scenes. I think it's been helping me keep an edge of tension in everything, downtime included.

I was listening to "Nobody's Listening" by Linkin Park yesterday and it helped spark a random idea that I'm working on now. That happens a lot with songs. I'll just start listening to something and I'll start writing.

Double post, but I think it's been long enough.

So, get this. My dad says that he'll write a song or two for tSotD if I let him read it so he can have something to work with. He'll write it, play it for me, record it, everything. I just have to...let him read the book.

But I think it's worth it, yeah?
