Depends on the project but i find [Tycho](https://www.merchline.com/iso50/categorydisplay.5340.c.htm “”) is suitable for any situation.# November 21, 2012 at 10:55 am
Dang, i wish i could @* you all, you guys are adding some great stuff.
@paulie_d : Ehhh, what does he even know?!
@joshuanhibbert : Green or gold, you deserve another one, been night #2 ive actually slept really good playing that site on my phone.
I did notice a site called GrooveShark. Nothing super exciting but i think you can add local music and pick from their selections as well.
There’s also a Chrome Extension called YouZeek where you can listen to artists from all over the world. Thought that was pretty interesting.# November 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm
@Shannendoah1 : Finally, i am not alone. That’s my style as well, anything fast loud and metal baby!
I am experimenting though and I am going to research (or search for research papers on the matter) of the effects on cognitive functions while listening to music. I did a paper on this a while back, in regards to heavy metal music, and the responses from the brain lead to a more care-free mood.
@nwalton : I’m sure classical music does add a creative or easy atmosphere.
I’m really happy with all this feedback. Personally when i code, its more back-end then mock-ups, design, etc. I normally have predetermined tasks that need accomplishing so i don’t need to be so creative as far as design, maybe architecture. So music is a big part of what i do, i am sure it is with you guys as well.
I’m trying to branch out from my norm and give some of your suggestions a try. For “chill” music i am currently giving “Of Monsters and Men” a try. They are a folk band from Iceland with a female singer. Also dabbling in “Mumford” and Sons, loving it so far.# November 23, 2012 at 5:12 am
Everything! Really I listen from classical music to metal to rock and roll to rap. Some people would say I have no personality, I prefer the term “open minded”. When I’m working on something complicated it usually happens that the playlist ends and I don’t notice and keep working with my headphones in my ears like a complete retard.
