        if you want to, you could start with something like hildegard of bingen or leonin because choral music creates great ambiance for focused reading, and moving forward from there chronologically you get to see the development of western classical music. if medieval music sounds too unappealing to you, you could do the opposite and start with something more modern and proceed backwards.

        Who's you go to anon? I'm a Tchaikovsky enjoyer myself. Although his music is a little too bombastic to read to, with the canons and energetic rhythms and so on. Also (cliché) Shostakovich and Debussy. If I want something a bit more contemporary, I'm partial to some Yehezkel Raz. And so haunting but amazing is Sofia Gubaidulina. Her string quartets are unreal. 😀

        i usually like to explore music from composers i've neglected or haven't listened to before. there are of course some favorites that have stuck with me more than the rest; i like rachmaninoff, sibelius, schubert, debussy, early schoenberg, boulanger and pärt. i haven't listened to sofia subaidulina, thanks for the rec.

      you have a poor understanding of both music and the texts you've read

      Ignore everything and go straight to Scriabin, one of the most based artists of all time

      Start with Ravel and Satie

      Where do I start? The greeks?

      I noticed Chopin works quite well with reading. If the music is too bombastic or intense it gets distracting for me

    Nothing with lyrics naturally, but if I'm in a crowded area or people are talking I'll listen to some instrumental stuff to focus on the book, otherwise I'll eavesdrop on the conversation and not do any reading

    It’s not uncommon to reference music in books, even citing lyrics. Adding a qr code looks cheap as hell though. Trust the reader to find the tracks if they’re important and they care enough to hear them.
    Aside from that the music selection listed is also ass.

    The lack of fresh and fun little ideas such as this is exactly the reason why morose chuds never make it in literature. Also why women are winning in general.

      Isnt this exactly what postmodern lit does? The postmodern lit that men are the most critically acclaimed within?

    What music would you recommend for Dune?
    I was thinking about the soundtracks of Dune 1984 and Lawrence of Arabia but they're both short.

    I was just about to say I always listen to Hildegard when reading on public transport - I really like feather on the breath of God, or some of the sequentia stuff. Also Palestrina as well, different but equally beautiful.

    Good prose is its own music (to say nothing of poetry).

    Depends on what I'm reading i guess. When I do, i listen to things like Bill Evans or Thelonious Monk's solo piano stuff.

    If it's something dense like philosophy I need silence

    Yes. Listening to Culture of Critique with foreboding music is quite a trip.

    I do, but it's mostly because I'm a composer and can't go on without listening to stuff everyday.
    Piano works and string quartets from the romantic period are easier to listen while reading, but I gotta go with my main man Messiaen. Everyone's gotta listen to his Vingt Regards at least once.
