Music is My Muse

Can I write without music?

Certainly. I learned that the hard way when my poor computer died.

Do I write better with music?

You bet your buttons.

Music doesn’t just help to cut out distractions. It also inspire – evokes images, moods, even entire characters.

Here, for your inspirational pleasure, are the current soundtracks for The Sundered (you can read the first chapter here) via Pandora radio:

http://bit.ly/8jOX5m – Middle Eastern electronica influences, laid back, very evocative, based on “Spring Arrives” by Azam Ali.

http://bit.ly/5RZoYZ –  Electronica influences, vocal-centric aesthetic, heavy syncopation and dirty electric guitar riffs, based on “Every Day is Exactly the Same” by Nine Inch Nails.

I hope these get your creative engines started the way they do mine.
