Usually some more mellow stuff. I actually have a playlist. It consists of the instrumental version of Blackout by Muse, a decent amount of radiohead (nude, karma police) Pink FLoyd, and some other generally mellow music.

I used to listen to a lot of Andres Segovia while studying, for some reason lately Ive been listening to more electronic music (BoC and Brian Eno mainly)

This might sound really nerdy but, the banjo kazooie and donkey kong soundtrack for n64... it rules.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

I've got alot of segovia as well, but I prefer light pianomusic mostly. Music with vocals is difficult to listen to when you're reading =/

you know a lot of chopin??

Mogwai, God Speed You Black Emperor, Caspian, Silver Mt. Zion, etc.

The less vocals/guitars, the better, for me at least. It has to be really ambient with little to no concrete tonal phrasing.

Interestingly enough though, this book I'm reading on Music Psych. says that people who can listen to highly textured music while preforming mentally strenuous tasks make better musicians in the sense that they are more apt to understand everything going on in as a pattern/single movement, rather than a combination of instruments. I believe the correct term is called "grouping"... but I dunno if that's what it is referred to in this case of psych.

Although that is also to say, these same people tend to focus less on the details of the single instrumentation. So, as a whole, it makes sense... but as you begin to identify a single instrument, they will falter.

It usually ends up being Muse, but Radiohead is great. So is The John Butler Trio. Also, Explosions in the Sky.

dude, i've been trying to find the name of one of his particular pieces for forever. it's on smallville, which is gay i know, but i got it stuck in my head. any help?


Not entirely sure, but I think it's from the "Nocturnes series". Maybe "Nocturne in E flat major, Op. 9, No. 2"

Btw I'm not sure if that link is allowed here, you can always edit it out just in case.
