Today marks the beginning of NaNoWriMo 2011 and as such, I’m sharing my playlist for the month.
Normally when I write, I can only listen to instrumental music, and it has to be something relatively new so I don’t recognise melodies and get distracted by the familiarity and start singing along. Which has been known to happen. Songs I know just distract me. So while I do have more music that just this, this is the playlist that is most unfamiliar to me.
- Escala (self-titled string quartet)
- Wild: Time (string, piano band)
- The Planets: Classical Graffiti (classical instrumental band)
- Secret Garden: Dawn of a New Century
- Secret Garden: Dreamcatcher
- Secret Garden: Earthsongs
- Secret Garden: Once in a Red Moon
- Secret Garden: Songs from a Secret Garden
- Secret Garden: White Stones
- Murray Gold: Doctor Who Season 1
- The BBC National Orchestra of Wales: Doctor Who Season 3
- Murray Gold & The BBC National Orchestra of Wales: Doctor Who Season 5
- Danny Elfman: Wanted film score
- David Hirschfelder: Legend of the Guardians film score
- The Red Dead Redemption Original Soundtrack (video game)
- Klaus Badelt: The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
- Hans Zimmer: The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
- Hans Zimmer: The Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
- Alexandre Desplat: Twilight: New Moon (The Score, not the soundtrack)
- Mozart’s Requiem
- The Best Classical Album In The World… Ever! (that is the actual name)
- Two classical compilations I’ve had since I was a teenager: Swooning and Rapture.
Also included are some random instrumental versions of songs by classical crossover artists, for distracting me when I need a break.
It’s 473 songs, 1 day’s worth according to my Ipod, and 2.88 GB of music.
I think I’m prepared.
