Do you listen to music while you write?
I’ve been wondering lately if the music I listen to while I write indirectly effects the content of my script. Is this possible?
This is very important me, because, if the music I listen to does effect content, then should something similar be included in the finished film? If I am visualizing a scene while listening to a specific song, then will the finished, edited scene be incomplete without the song? Will a piece be missing? For instance, I listened to one particular song over and over while writing the opening scene of my short film, First Light; however, there was no score in the film.
I’ve been listening to music while writing my current script. I usually listen to “Drone Zone” on SomaFM.com and my favorite band is Stars of the Lid. Their music is very moody and puts me in the perfect mood for this particular project. However, I am not sure if I will include music in my film.
So what do you think? Does the music we listen to while writing indirectly effect content? If so, is it best to include music in the finished film?
Here’s a video of Stars of the Lid performing live:
