Worldbuilding Music


Recommended Posts

As someone who always listens to podcasts/music whilst doing anything in life, I also do so whilst worldbuilding/ writing roleplays/ news posts on here. However, I've noticed that there's one particular and very specific thing I almost always listen to when worldbuilding the SSI: East-German socialist music. That made me wonder if y'all have a specific worldbuilding background music and if so if you'd be willing to share.

SSI a communist confirmed? 😛

Nah, although I'm in the liberal/left quarter of the political compass, I'm not a socialist or communist (also these compasses lack a lot of questions that might shift my position considerably). I just like their music, as it is full of hope for a better world, something I think is rare today. For example I think the GDR anthem is way prettier (and more fitting) than the current one, even though I am super glad that the GDR no longer exists.

i listen to Gregorian Chants, calms me down and helps me focus. 

Oooh, sometimes I also listen to religious music, although I am agnostic.

Oooh @Llalta I know what you mean! My favourites are Jinsei no Merry-Go-Round and that weird macabre song from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. I've also seen @Orioni listen to his Joe Hisaishi Spotify playlist quite a lot on the Discord. :D Big fan. Music from My Neighbour Totoro and the new, orchestral versions of the music from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald are also near and dear to my heart.

Yesss!!! I love all of them, especially Path of The Wind and Littleroot Town! Something about Joe Hisaishi and other Japanese composer's I just really love.

I typically try to avoid anything with lyrics because it can be disruptive when I'm trying to think how I want to phrase something or just in general what I want to put down. Lately, I've been fueling my writing with background horror music. I'm not sure why but it really works well with me. Or I'll listen to a very specific artist (Machinedrum) in the electronic sort of genre.

 

I promise I listen to normal people music in my off time 🤪
