Long have I been inspired by the music of sci-fi films. Ever wondered who wrote those haunting melodies? Or where they draw their inspiration from? Today's blog is a guest post from science fiction and fantasy author Chris Turner on the most famous music composers in science fiction.
An impromptu collection of some of my favorite albums to write to.
I’m never at a coffee shop without headphones. Music helps me focus. It’s a reliable way to block out distractions when needed, which is most of the time.
My choices of tracks for writing are instrumental or electronic. Almost none of the songs on these albums have lyrics.
The moods range from rhythmic rock jams to brooding melodic vocals with crooning guitars. Lots of Jazz thrown in and scrambled up the way it should be.
I’ve been listening to these albums for years—they don’t go stale for me.
In no particular order…
Absolutely anything from Ratatat’s playlist makes for good writing music.
Mogwai is hit or miss on writing music but I like this one
I listened to this album for a month straight.
This playlist helped me find a bunch of new stuff.
Stoney Street. Easy Muffin. Chomp samba! Even the names sound like jazz. Love the names, love Amon Tobin.
