Vanessa Bell Painting by Duncan Grant- from the National Gallery
I've been doing a lot of writing lately and, while it's hard for me to work in silence, I can't very well write to the blare of the latest MIA song (that's for looking at runway shows) so I've been listening to a lot of instrumental music. I find that anything romantic or sentimental with cello or piano gets me going. If I can imagine one of the brilliant minds of the Bloombury group painting or writing to it, it's got to be good. It helps for me to get a visual in my head of an artist busy at work and then I can get to work too!
So, here is what's been on my Spotify playlist lately:
The Hours soundtrack by Philip Glass
The Atonement Soundtrack by Dario Marinelli
Yo Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone
Actually, any piano music by Philip Glass
The Downton Abbey Soundtrack (although I skip over the singing parts)
What do you like to listen to while you work?
