Post 3/3 as a part of Bring Back Blogging. 🎉
Yesterday in the office, we talked about the music that we listen to while working. If I’m writing code or thinking in language, I tend to favour instrumental or ambient music. If the work is a bit more external and visual, like layout and design, then I’m open to a variety.
Here are a few albums that have been in my rotation at the office:
- Anyhow by Leeland Whitty
- Love In Us All by Pharoah Sanders
- Sable (Original Video Game Soundtrack) by Japanese Breakfast
- Komachi by Meitei
- Promises by Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders, London Symphony Orchestra
- Space 1.8 by Nala Sinephro (+ Live at Real World Studios)
I tend to select albums most often, but when I can’t think of any in particular, I have a few regular playlists to fall back on. Some of the ones listed here are a style of playlist that I differentiate as a “collection”. They aren’t built with a regular playlist structure. The songs aren’t in any particular order, and often they contain full albums or large portions. “Collections” are meant to be listened to in shuffle order.
- Work Collection on Spotify
- Ambient Collection on Spotify
- Japanese Ambient Collection on Spotify
- Today’s Jazz on Spotify
For Apple Music users, Apple curates a playlist that I enjoyed listening to, called New Latitudes.
