Post Dedicated to Music:

I’ve been listening this a lot lately. I don’t usually post music here but….why not? It’s a pretty important inspiration source for me. Some tunes just create different feelings/moods, memories, places…etc. I can almost “see” what I’m listening. It also works other way around, if I see a really awesome music video, I begin to like the song ‘cause I can see the clip in my head everytime I’m listening it. 

If I’m drawing something “gore” or monstrous I might listen the same black metal song on repeat over and over again until the drawing is finished. I’m always afraid that if I change the background music it will effect somehow to the end result. And if I’m drawing something really childish I might listen children’s songs and so on. That’s how it works for me. My taste is quite wide. But when I really have to concentrate I need silence to hear my thoughts. Silence is underrated nowadays.



People like to talk about themselves and share thoughts, so let’s continue. Here’s a few songs I begin to dig because of some beautiful animated frammmmmes:



Sometimes it just fits perfectly in the scene. Heavy Metal (Takin’ a Ride) - Don Felder. If you haven’t seen Heavy Metal, you should. There’s a unique atmosphere in that film and it’s filled with good music (Black Sabbath, Devo, Nazareth, Journey etc..). Is it also sexist? Yes, but in this case it doesn’t matter.



Mediational Field - Susumu Hirasawa



This specific song was written by They Might Be Giants but the whole OST for Coraline film is just so good and it really supports visuals and story, composed by the French composer Bruno Coulais. One of my favorite animated films. List is endless but I don’t want to fill my whole blog frontpage with youtube clips. Join me next week when I share songs that boosts your my creativity during car rides at night (?).
