When I’m creating, I usually like to have something in the background to listen to, to inspire me, or just for added enjoyment. I listen to all types of music, depending on my mood and what type of art I am creating. I also like to listen to the spoken word, be it stories, fables, poetry, or old radio programs.
We have all heard the expression “the soundtrack of my life”. Well, this is “the soundtrack of my art”.
Hope you get inspired by my eclectic mix of words and music!
