Music to code by

Lately I’ve been having to step back in to writing a lot of code. I used to have no trouble at all concentrating on the task at hand, but for some reason focusing these days is tough. Its probably the vast number of distractions from co-workers needing help with this, that, or the other thing. At any rate, slapping on a Tool album or Captain Beefheart or something like that certainly isn’t going to help matters, so I’ve gone back to my music collection to find some tunes that are “barely there”.

Recommendations:

  • Godspeed! You black emperor – Yanqui U.X.O
  • Pole – 1
  • Basic Channel – Basic Channel
  • Monolake – Momentum
  • Brian Eno – Apollo
  • Pan Sonic – Aaltopirii
  • Autechre – Tri Repetae++
  • Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works Vol I and II
  • Aerovane – Tides

All of these albums are pretty linear, with very few quick changes in time signature or tempo. They’d probably work well for relaxing after a rough day at the office. I’ll update this list as I find new tunes to code by.

  1. What a coincidence, I was listening to Slowdive today for the first time. It was the Pygmalion album (I haven’t heard any others, hopefully this is a good start).

    Surface of Eceon I haven’t heard of, but if it’s a recommendation from Senor McCullers, than its not to be squandered. I will be checking them out soon.

    Thanks man!
