Lately I've been listening the OST from the game Dramatical Murder. All the music from Nitro+chiral games is very relaxing and inspiring! <3

So typical osts from a playlist that i have a million different osts from a bunch of random things.
If i am feeling neutral while writing I'll but on some J-rock to relax.
If I am feeling extremely pumped about writing I'll throw on some heavy punk.
I listen to a lot of odd genres of music but I'll often drown it all out while I'm writing.
Music is usually on while I'm writing, but I don't always listen to it. It drowns out all the other noise in my house, noise I can't ignore otherwise. The music becomes white noise that makes it easy to ignore. Like a fan. My earphones make the rest of the world go away then it's just me and my story.
Sometimes I'll listen to a song before I write a scene just to set the mood. But it could be Rock, pop, country, classical, folk and so on. Depends on the scene and my mood.

Though when I'm proofreading and coding (those 2 are the same process to me), it always be music which will be used in a scene in the game. In my experience, music is one of the core element on coding. I can listen random music when I'm writing or drawing, but not coding.

I cannot, and I will repeat it; canNOT write without the right music. To me, music is the soul behind anything grand. It can turn a horrible scene into something amazing, and lacking it can turn an amazing scene into crap. Therefore, music itself, fuels the imagination and allows one to fully bring out the emotions you are trying to convey through your writing.
With that said, I have several thousand songs in my arsenal. Having gathered them for years; each one, pin pointing a particular emotion. When I am struggling with my writing, I go through my music until I find one that allows me to write how I want to be writing. Something that matches the scene and feeling I am not always so easily able to convey through simple words. From oldies, jazz, classical to modern, Japanese, Korean, German, etc. All styles and countries. Whatever gives off that particular melody or conveys that particular message.
Seriously. If I am listening to the wrong music, I can't feel anything, well, well enough to to actually be able to properly write for my characters.
No wonder one of my simpler, yet favorite stories, is about the power music instills in the human soul.
But recently, because of plenty of deadlines, I've been listening to no music so I could concentrate more on the writing, thoughts and dialogues and all. I'm pleased to say that the quality of the writing improved a bit, but it's sort of lonely. xD

So i'm kind of half and half when it comes to music but, if I do listen to it, it's usual lyric-less and directily related to what i'm doing.
