More than just Volocio out here…

On Music as a Source of Inspiration…

I do most of my writing with a playlist in the background. I have always had a thing for soundtracks and when I was younger (actually I still do this today) I would listen to a song an imagine scenes played out. In fact there have been a number of songs that have really inspired some scenes. Currently the ones I have been listening to the most are the following:

The Fountain original soundtrack by Clint Mansell
Civilian by Wye Oak
Last of the Mohicans original soundtrack by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman
La Concha Perla traditional song of La Marinera
Viento de los Andes a CD of various traditional Andean music
Songs by Loreena McKennitt
Songs by Nuttin’ but Stringz
Wuthering Heights original soundtrack from the Masterpiece Theater version by Ruth Barrett

What about you guys? What songs inspire you? As you can see, my list is sort of all over the place and these are songs that help me in my current project. I have a list for Volocio but since that book isn’t out yet there is no point in telling you that list until then.

I may revisit this post later once the book is out there and then I will give you a more accurate list of what songs help inspire what scenes.

Well, that’s all I have for now. I know it’s been awhile and I promise to write more!

Until next time,
Cheers,
MLT

  1. Ever since I was little, I was always musically oriented. I loved all things entertainment, and continue to as I get older. I find that music has always been a good source of not only entertainment, but inspiration for me as well. Whether it be while I’m hanging out with friends and family, or just relaxing after a long day. I find I always place together so many ideas in my head when I listen to a really good song. Music is a very powerful thing.
