I like to listen to instrumental music while I work. It’s relaxing and there are no words to interfere with my thinking at a given moment. I am currently addicted to the soundtracks of Jeremy Soule. He writes soundtracks for video games, but trust me if you didn’t know what you were listening to you would never guess that the music was from a video game. Production budgets for games have become so big that the line is blurring between the movie and game industries. Jeremy Soule is a pioneer in bringing movie quality scores to the game market and if you love soundtracks/scores you owe it to yourself to check out his stuff. You can purchase mp3’s of his music through his Direct Song website. The first thing I would get would be the Guild Wars – Factions expansion set score. It is incredible. He also did the music for the upcoming game Prey for Xbox 360.
