    Depends on how fast I want to write Wink

    I've got a deadline job, then I usually put something fast paced on, like Sonic Mayhem, Frank Klepacki, The Prodigy, etc...

    Whereas, if I need to be creative, usually Muse or Adam Freeland, maybe something from my "Others" collection.

    Else, whatever's next in my playlist.

    It really does depend.

    1) Most of the corporates I'm at find music at work unprofessional, and I have to agree.

    2) At home, well it depends on what I'm doing, but right now it's acoustic jazz guitar. Or a 24 hour news channel. Or Futurama Big Smile

    I work in a room with three other people, and it's not a big room - about 18 ft x 18 ft, no cubicles. One of them's my boss and he's quite often on the phone. There are plenty of distractions - ringing phones, people having impromptu design discussions (possibly with some of the three people who work in the other room), people talking on the phone. To be able to concentrate, I need to listen to something to blank out everything else that's going on.

    Today's selection has been Presidents of the United States Of America - their eponymous first album. Yesterday it was Franz Ferdinand and Joe Satriani. Later on it might be Electric Six or Sack Trick, or perhaps Jimi Hendrix - haven't decided yet.
