Now Playing: background for the working artist
Topic: In the studio
So, what do you listen to while you're crafting? I have a little stereo in my studio where I cycle through a variety of things.
There's always the radio - set to a local Christian music, oldies, or jazz station.
Books on tape, CD or MP3 are favorite listening, too. I love reading, and being able to read a book while I craft is a bonus. (I listen while I clean house and drive, as well)
I have some music on CD in the studio and can load up to 5 disks to play straight through or randomly select from the stack. I have a variety of musical styles in my collection including all of the above as well as Celtic, men's quartets (Statlers, Oak Ridge Boys), and (don't laugh) Yanni. I also like to listen to Julie Cruise, Nickel Creek, Charlotte Church, and Sarah McLachlan.
However if I had to pick just one thing to listen to forever it would be Alan Jackson's CD Precious Memories. This man has the perfect voice for singing my favorite old hymns and he presents 15 of them in this 2005 release. Disappointingly, the title song is not included!
Someday, I hope to have a mini TV and media player in the studio so I can play instructional DVDs and craft along with the instructions. I guess I could do that now with my laptop..... say..... I better go check out some DVDs!
