Was just thinking the other night how important music is to me when it comes to creating art, i can barely work without it. So ive decided to compile a list of my favourite music tracks in the hope that some of you will be inspired by it also
In no particular order:
Strangers by Yoko Kanno - possibly one of my favourite songs ever, it has just about every single instrument on earth with in it, yet they all work perfectly together.
Wicked Game by Chris isaac - A really haunting song.
Cathedral by Thomas Newman - The song i listened to a great deal while painting "Her Silent Silhouette"
Achilles Heal by Toploader - Every time i hear this song im reminded of the day i started digital painting
Whisper of a thrill by Thomas Newman - Another beautiful song which invokes a lot emotion, basically anything by Thomas Newman is gold!
Glósóli by Sigur Ros - unique and beautiful with a very powerful ending...watch www.emichrysalis.co.uk/quickti…
Stability by Death cab for Cutie - A very long song at 12 minutes, but its time well spent.
Teardrop by Massive Attack - amazing song, lyrics and that piano!
All is full of love by Bjork - A classic.
Dayvan Cowboy by Boards of Canada - Just makes me feel like falling in slowmotion.
Space Lion by Yoko Kanno - is there any type of music this woman hasnt already mastered?!
Reincarnation by Kenji Kawai - The main title theme music to Ghost in the Shell... say no more.
Cyberbird by Yoko Kanno - A really powerful and uplifting song, makes you want to run to the ends of the earth.
Give it away by Zero7 - chilled like no other...
Well i think thats enough for now, hope people find some of these songs and are inspired by them as i still am:
