    What do you ladies and gentlemen listen to when you're editing your photos?

    Do you actually listen to music when you're editing your photos?

    Generally I listen to rock (all sorts but mainly classic rock and prog) but find that when I'm editing I get far too distracted by polyrhytms and distortion. I've found that anything classically composed works much better for me when I'm working, anything from Vivaldi to Ennio Morricone. But then I stumbled acoss Apocalyptica, now I can have the best of both worlds and maintain focus.

    I love that version. Seems to me Metallica toured with or at least had an orchestra for one of their shows.

    I listen to Drum & Bass, Breakbeat and a little of everything else thrown in. When shooting models I crank the Drum and Bass. They do not know what hit them, but they do enjoy it.

    Love & Bass

    Drum'n'Bass all the way. As a DnB DJ there's no lack of beats on the computer to accompany the other creative pursuits. :mrgreen:

    Yes!!!!! I am glad there is another DnB head on this forum.

    To be more specific; Hospital records crew for the modeling studio shoots. Generally they have never heard it, but maybe just maybe some have gone out and bought London Elecktricity or something. For editing I lean toward the dark side. Old Noisia, Calyk & Teebee, Hive & Gridlock just to name a few.

    What style/artists do you spin?

    Love & Bass

    Not a big DnB fan myself mainly because I haven't heard much but I love listeing to Aphex Twin and Venetian Snares. I know it's not drum and base but it's the closest thing I have in my collection. Here's a couple more I love listening to while editing:

    Pain of Salvation, Sweedish prog:



    Venetian Snares (not a big fan of the glitched bit but I couldn't find a version without it):



    Ennio Morricone (the legend himself):



    Love that song but maybe it's just because I watch too many Sergio Leone films.

    Dreali I love your taste in music. I prefer instrumentals as well but I'm biased since I've been playing in orchestras/bands since I was 11 :p. For editing/shooting (I take my ipod with me to shoot), I start with one of the movements of Dvorak's symphony no. 9, depending on what mood I am in: movement 1 or 2 for optimism and one of the other 2 for pessimism. After that I pick one of my many more in-depth, mood-categorized playlists. :)

    Cheers Felix, I must say the same about yours, Dvorak's music is fantastic and I can see how nice it would be to shoot while listening to him, I'll have to give that a try tomorrow! I too like listening to my ipod while shooting, at times I feel I get into a certain rythm while snapping away at people on the street. You mentioned you've played in orchestras and bands, what instrument(s) do you play?
