Painting + Music = Win?
« on: November 15, 2008, 07:24:33 AM »
Hey gang  :D

Just musing while i have a break from painting, but what music do you tend to listen to/enjoy whilst painting? Does this also reflect the models/army you are painting as well?

For me i generally listen to music with what i associate with the 41st Millennium

Bolt Thrower ( OMFG awesome )
Opeth ( Eldar-ish lament )
Moonsorrow - Tuleen Ajettu Maa ( amazing song - 26 mins of awesomeness )


For fantasy i generally listen to,

Rhapsody
Finntroll
Korpiklaani
Amon Amarth
Ensiferum
Wintersun
Moonsorrow - Tuleen Ajettu Maa ( again  :D)

I suppose this does sort of reflect my armies/painting styles when i paint.

How about you?

personally i find the gladiator/lord of the rings/alexander soundtracks perfect for fantasy painting and babylon 5" messages from earth" for 40k painting.

I listen to classic rock.  I don't think the music I listen too changes my style .  I don't have different bands for different armies either

When I do listen to music while painting, it will be Disturbed, Rammsetin, or Bullet for my Valentine, if just because I like their music.

Coheed and cambria, episodes of firefly and battlestar galactica, and nine inch nails are my chaos space marines' best friends.  I guess its the scifi themes (even nin has a gritty, dehumanized, electronic feel)

Hmmmm... occasionally I listen to the LOTR soundtrack while I paint, but usually I just have some white noise, like a fan.

Black metal + 40k = indeeed win. I always listen to some music while painting, usually black metal or doom metal. you know, general grim dark and eldar cries of despair.

Depends, really.

If I'm painting at GW, I won't listen to anything. I prefer chatting with the other people around the table and in the store. If I'm at home, however, it's generally just whatever my ipod throws up on shuffle. Mostly metal, some classic rock, punk or grunge.

Stuff that usually crops up includes Nightwish, Within Temptation, Manowar, Bad Religion, Alice in Chains and half of the usual 'classic rock' bands.

I'm less hardcore.

Band of Horses, Kanye, anything with Jack White, The Shins, Jay-Z, Weezer, and stuff like that.

Personally I put a DVD on rather than music when I paint. I usually only paint in the evenings, so the lighting is not good and I find looking up at the TV now and then relieves eyestrain. So as not to become distracted from painting I usually put on something I have seen many times before and have no need to follow the plot. Tonight, for example, I had AvP.

It depends, I tend to listen to classical off the radio and/or jazz, but if I feel like it I'll pop in a CD with a mixture of rock/metal/alternative.

I usually put the T.V. on for background noise.  That or a movie.  Gladiator and LoTR movies are good.

Yeah I've watched lord of the rings while painting many times, its great background music, and more importantly, it lasts forever.

I don't listen to music all the time just because sometimes silence is golden..... sometimes.

When I do its ussually something new I just bought or my PSP has a great Techno radio station. You gotta love that internet radio no commercials and its free.  ;D

Slayer, Metallica, Meshuggah, Mnemic, Hatebreed ... I set the iPod to Metal and press random.

Wow, someone else out there also listens to Finntroll. I feel somewhat more normal now.

As for the actual topic, I usually have music of some sort on in the background. When you paint a lot of guardsmen, it's nice to have something to help pass the time. The musical content doesn't really matter, I'll paint just as readily listening to metal as I will to jazz.

That makes three of us, Finntroll is awesome  ;D

I tend to listen to a few different types of things, depending on my mood..

I'll either throw on one (or more) of my DnB mixes (always the dark/heavy ones), or maybe set the hacked Xbox to stream from Techno.fm.. Sometimes I'll put on some Rammstein or Fear Factory if I want some industrial-metal, or if I want straight-up industrial I'll throw on some Leatherstrip and Electric Hellfire Club

You should all check out www.Pandora.com if you have access to a computer where you paint.  You just type in a band name and it constructs a radio station with that band and similar bands in those genres.  I find it the easiest way to not worry about itunes throwing in my audio books during shuffle play.
...but I could be wrong.
