re: Listening to music while working - Yay or nay and what to listen to VIEW POST

For no-brainer-activities like updating tasks, HTML/CSS etc. I listen to podcasts, or music like Ryan Adams, John Mayer, Damien Rice, nothing heavy.

For "deep" work (at least as deep as interface-development gets 😬) I have two playlists I listen to:

Slow scary industrial techno-music

Indie-game soundtracks (my own playlist)

Also there is this pretty awesome website listentothe.cloud, where you can listen to live airport-chatter mixed with ambient-music from Soundcloud. Works pretty well!

 

"slow scary industrial techno" sounds appropriate for software development 😄

 

Oh and I think "spooky" is a better word, not "scary"

 

Maybe "industrial" is usually something else, but it's mostly some slow subgenre of techno, like youtube.com/watch?v=nxg4C365LbQ

 

Thanks for the recommendation of listentothe.cloud - Strangely satisfying!
