Best music to make art by

Hey everyone. My job is sedentary. At least for now. I'm a resident director at a small college and exams are about to start. That means my RAs won't be able to cover any days and I'm stuck on campus for a few weeks. I'd like to use some of that free time to get back to making art, which is something I really love and kind of miss. I'm putting together a playlist, probably really long and just something I can hit shuffle and run with, of songs that are good for artistic ambience. Suggestions?

Any music by female solo artists such as Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Aimee Mann. Female solo artists evoke passion and colors inside a listener when you aren't concentrating on the music. The duet of music and the female voice can be the useful tool in creating. You'll find the art gaining a life of its own while you are painting. If you don't have them, you should pick up Whatever, Hounds Of Love, The Dreaming and From The Choirgirl Hotel.

Kate, Tori, F'Lips, Floyd, and Sigur Ros are definites. I'm sifting through about 9,000 songs, though.

Honestly, I think painting to Pink Floyd might result in some disturbing art not to mention a lot of pigs.

Maybe if you paint to Jugband Blues.

I'd like to paint to Meddle or The Division Bell.

I like to listen to music when I write, especially jazz. I really only got into Pink Floyd in the last few months, though, and I wrote a lot to Dark Side of the Moon. Chet Baker is my favorite jazz musician--he's an amazing trumpeter, and his voice is like a dream.

I'd say try listening to a different kind of music every day while you work for maybe a week. It will be interesting to see if the finished products end up any different based on the music you were listening to while you made them.

That's a good point

"Timmy, why's your finger painting covered in blood?"

"Oh, I was listening to some Slayer this weekend."

Non lyrical music where the thinking hasn't already been done for you.

I like a lot of that atmospheric Buddhist monk stuff. Seriously.

I listen just some hard rock and ofcourse u2. I like the 80's music also, Enya, I think Kate Bush is good too.

I would also go back to the Doors and the Who.

"Then She Did" and "Three Days" by Jane's Addiction are both extremely visual as well emotional. Lyrically intriguing too. I'd be curious to see what you came with to those two.
