I tend to work in silence, because I can’t do two things at the same time. If I work I focus on working, if I listen to music I focus on the music. Ain’t no multitasking program in my brain.
may be weird, but I love ami or cinematic epic music, soundtracks, Audiomachine, Immediate Music, Future World Music, etc.. But I also like some quiet sometimes artists like Enya, Vangelis, was, etc … and also enjoy some classic rock, Latin, pop and electro when code. And seme forgot, jazz / progressive when it 3d.
I’m listening to dubstep or minimal tracks, they push me and keep me motivated!
I actually listen to a lot of country music when I design, sometimes I sing along.
Anything really, depends on mood. But usually Psytrance, Trance, House, Dubstep, heavy metal, opera and Classical music.
John Frusciante, Dot Hacker, The Parlotones, Prime Circle, Van Coke Kartel, Die Heuwels Fantasties.
I usually need to have “Family guy” on in the background instead of music! x )
...However, I listen to Pantera, Down, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Black Label Society, Pearl Jam, Motörhead, Black Sabbath…
Richie Hawtin and Dubfire, Oliver Koletszki, Jamie Jones and any other house/tech house, tehno and minimal
