I could see this playlist (excellent, by the way) as useful to accompany a particular kind of writing, something rough, like a draft. When I first dive in and write like there is no tomorrow. I find it providing me energy (and some resilience) to engage in the writing, but not enough aural clarity to get me to a point of being able to write with refinement. I would use different music for more precision or to revise the draft. I could see it as celebratory after writing music, as well. Excellent work.

I definitely agree with Michael’s comment about draft writing. At the moment I’m quite enjoying the process of gathering notes, quotes, images and links together in a document, with the intention that it will eventually become some more formal writing, but actually not containing much in the way of structure and refinement…or actual writing. I find that to be quite an exhilarating process where ideas form and associations are made quickly, without the hindrance or interruption of actually having to think through a coherent sentence. I see this playlist as potentially useful for that kind of gathering of ideas, but also perhaps as involved in the process of working into such a document. There seems to be a transition into a less lyrical, moodier, electronic, more repetitive mode, which while remaining at a similar tempo, would more like the kind of audio ambiance I’d write to. I wonder if this playlist is therefore useful to see through the earlier stages of ideas-generation into more formal, or at least more refined, writing. I sometimes find there is a level of excitement about an idea that is sometimes hard to maintain in the (laborious?) requirements for explanation and clarification in academic writing. Can a playlist provide some kind of sensory support to drilling deeper into ideas I wonder? Pontape Remake 2013 is awesome.
