    Do you listen to music while painting or doing hobby stuff? While writing? Cleaning figures up? Making army lists?

    Does it differ on the period you are playing?

    What kind of music? Any metal heads out there?

    I usually have something on. Either music, sport on the radio or a documentary on TV/DVD. Currently working my way through Hew Strahans series on WWI that came out around 10 years ago.

    Which musical genre depends a bit upon mood at the time and also whether I’m ‘home alone’ or have to take wife/kids into consideration.

    I don’t listen to anything – I like the silence (as all I hear in my day is noise).

    It also means I can hear what our rascal cat is up to

    I actually use my painting time to listen to podcasts.  When I do listen to music it will be modern classical e.g: John Williams Star Wars OST etc.

    Always. Drowns out the noise of other things going on so I can properly (try to at least) concentrate. Lots of podcasts and Lets Play type videos as well as music also feature though. Not really era/genre tailored most of the time, I mean currently I am working on modern era terrain building plus troops and some starships yet am listening to a mess of Devin Townsend/Little V (particularly his game soundtrack cover/remixes)/Neurotech and bunch of old Swing orchestra stuff.

    I’ll make no argument as to my musical taste being good or not.

    Townsend and swing music?

    I don’t if that can even be classified on a “good/bad” scale but more power to you 🙂

    WWOZ out of New Orleans, usually. Although lately I’m listening to a lot of Billy Connolly on youtube.

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    I usually listen to something while I’m painting, either the local radio station, which is apparently unaware that there were songs written post 1986, or some worthy album I’ve bought that I can’t be bothered listening to unless I’m doing something else. I’m not a metalhead, though I do like Nadja, Sunn o))) and a little bit of Om. But not while painting.

    I like listening to music while I paint. Often, it’s rock, classical or ambient, depending on how I feel.

    Sometimes, I like to listen to something that’s appropriate to the period that I’m painting to get me in the right mindset. Spotify is great for making up playlists for this stuff. I’ve got a Dark Age playlist (heavy on movie soundtracks and Medieval-sounding bands like Corvus Corax), a Mexican-American War playlist (19th Century military music from Mexico and the US), and a Russian Civil War playlist (Czarist and Bolshevik marching songs from the RCW period or close to it). I would consider playing these during games, but I don’t want to inflict it on fellow gamers unless they like it.

    I have been listening to the Napoleon podcasts for a while, episode 22 currently. I listened to another podcast series on the Roman civil war, all pretty good stuff.

    Yep, that’s the one! I would recommend them, even though I’m not even halfway 😉
