Audio to Model By
What do you listen to when painting figures or building models? I tend to switch between either a new-age style music genre or audio books.
As I tend to build models around medieval town, ghost town or ancient ruins, I find this the right mood music for this work comes from artists like Clannad or Enya and film sound tracks like Lord of the Rings. The Clannad collection grew out of the soundtrack to the TV series Robin of Sherwood.
With that playing I’m easily transported back to the period of the tv series.
Ok, I’ll come clean at this point, before I start recommending a few more of the titles, John Dorney, actor and writer, who has performed in several and also written for their Doctor Who and Sapphire and Steel series is also a member of the D&D group of which both BigLee , and myself are members. So I am slightly biased on some.
Dr Who the Lost Stories - The First Doctor Box Set where he plays Alexander the Great
Three titles written by John Dorney
Companion Chronicles - Echoes of Grey performed by Wendy Padbury
Companion Chronicles - Solitaire performed by India Fisher
Sapphire & Steel - Remember Me staring David Warner and Susannah Harker.
And, if anyone can recommend any other artists who they listen to whilst being creative, please leave a comment at the end.
I usually Twitter what I'm listening to when working on models, if you want to know what they are then follow me on Twitter (@djkettlety).
