Studio Playlist: 23 Songs

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

As I've been using this blog to catalog my references and inspirations (an annotated gallery of selected images can be viewed here), I thought it might also be interesting to create a list of favorite songs that inspire me, whether I'm out and about or in the studio. Like the images, these songs offer a bit more insight into my process.


Special thanks to fellow SCAD MFA Jared Seff for the song recommendations Dies Irae, Dies Illa and Oh Death, which also inspired this post. :)
