Music is a big part of my studio experience – I play certain songs when I’m in certain moods, because it reminds me of a particular piece I’m working on at the moment, or to get me (or keep me) motivated.
Our system at home for music is 2-part. To play music, we use a speaker that’s part of the Sonos range of products. It’s a simple set-up (a central part that creates its own wireless network and one speaker) that has really good sound. I can access the controls from my computer and my phone, which makes it very easy to use. I love it. To find music to play, we use the rdio online service (not a spelling error…). We have a subscription with access to pretty much anything we can think of to listen to. I’ve found a ton of music I really enjoy by just browsing through the menus of what other people are listening to.
This week in music, I’m sharing a favourite artist. I like the catchy beats, interesting rhythms and sounds, and I love the vocalists. The artist is SBTRKT, and you can read more about this music at the SBTRKT website.
I think that my favourite song from this album is Pharaohs ft. Roses Gabor. I like the sharp staccato melody against the soft breathy vocals. The beat keeps my energy up and keeps me moving. You can listen to the song and watch the video here. Enjoy!
