Evocative Music

Lately I've found great inspiration from jazz, classical and new age instrumental (that's a bit of a mouth full). As a hobby I love to write, and I've been doing so since I was young; middle school to be a little more precise. Typically music without lyrics provides me the greatest creative mindset.

I'm fascinated how much influence the mood of the piece I'm listening to can sway the type of writing I produce. It's a great thing to take advantage of, really. Thus, if I want to write something with some spring in its step, I'll listen to upbeat music.
As well, I love to paint and draw. A favorite method in creating a painting is allowing a music piece to evoke an image in my mind and painting what I see.

What music is inspirational for you?


  1. It would be nice if you could share with us, sometimes, the jazz songs you found inspiring.

  2. Thank you, I will do that soon. I will include where I heard it from too, because I like things to be detailed.
