This quote started a lil’ off-topic discussion that I think deserves its own thread right here, right now. #FatBoySlim
Do you listen to musics while playing Boundless?
Yes? Then which ones tickle your fancy? When? Why? How? What? Uh?
What factors the most in your musical choices? Is it the activity you’re doing? How grindy you might find it? How relaxing it is? Maybe you’re just in the mood?
Can you share some of those phat beatsies with us?
To be honest, I love the sound effects on Boundless, but the music has never really quite grabbed me as much as playing without it on, or with something else of my choice. I do play without any music at all a lot of the time.
Changes frequently but the most common defining factor is that I probably don’t listen to much post 2000 (AD!).
Side note to back this up…my niece is off to the Reading festival soon (what is my sister thinking…my niece is only 16!!) and she went through the line up…I knew 1 band…1
While hitting exo’s last couple of days, I’ve been listening to Tracy Chapman, which made me very nostalgic for my student days…
I should listen to the in-game music…1 year in…about time
Yep, mining or resource gathering while zoning out to my music is one of my favorite things to do, so relaxing and really even healing. I’ve found this sort of thing better than pretty much anything for helping with low moods and sadness, it is a complete escape, and afterwards I find I feel better too.
On the music, my favorites are mostly pretty obscure things… a lot of Celtic-type stuff, some stuff that would be called New Age but not the really relaxing, sleepy New Age kind of music but usually with a bit more electronic influences and more upbeat. David Arkenstone and Inon Zur are two examples that do game music who might be more familiar to folks here who do a lot of stuff I like.
This Sleepthief video, Eurydice, is one of my favorites, not only a beautiful song but a really cool retelling of the Orpheus myth-
