I know its a bit odd, but I quite like the Sky EPG music when doing Homework. Here is the link to Youtube for 2015, my personal favourite. I'm sad that they don't do it for 2019+ anymore.

Not sure if I posted this in the correct forum.
Classic rock. Love a bit of Aerosmith, Seether, Tonic, Bon Jovi, Tom Petty, AC/DC, The Who etc. I can work for hours with that kind of music blaring.

Mildly classical (although electronic) either Anno 2070 OST or Anno 1404. Both have a classical vibe, the 2070 being music set in the future, so it has industrial undertones of heavy industry, whereas the 1404 is set in that time, so more relaxing pieces, they both have italian, latin and sometimes German vocals in some pieces, and heavy emphasis on the depth of sound that can be created with stringed instruments with using the human voice as an instrument in itself. Theses are city builder/economy simulations so the music is meant to be relaxing and immersive, but not too distracting.

Swan Songs and Swan Songs II by Lord of the Lost are my go-to study music. It's essentially the product of what happens when a metal band crashes into a symphony orchestra. They also released all the tracks without vocals too ('Swan Symphonies' versions) which I sometimes listen to instead.

Example: Annabel Lee (if you're familiar with Edgar Allan Poe's work it's actually his poem of the same name put to music)



In a similar vein Blutengel's album Black Symphonies is also among my study music. Although theirs is more of a dark wave/classical mix.

Example: Soultaker



Failing that I listen to straight-up orchestral recordings. I was in a computer lab alone at uni a couple weeks back doing coursework so I took out my earphones and was loudly blasting an album consisting of works composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) not knowing that a class was due to come in at 3:30pm (I had been in there since like 1pm and my classmates had gone home at 2pm). That was a little embarrassing. :lol:

fun fact my username is a type of orchestra.

I listen to whatever music I want before studying to psych myself up, but not whilst studying because that doesn't usually result in productivity.

First time I've heard of these, thank you completely my type of music 100%. Like I do like orchestral things, but when there is a cross between orchestral/classical and another genre then that is complete bliss. Especially like the second one you posted, with the like 'anvil' sounds now and again, it makes me so happy.

Classical. Debussy, Bach (Goldberg Variations, wanna fee like Hannibal Lecter), Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Camille Saint-Saëns.

Movie soundtracks. Anything by James Horner (RIP) gets the juices flowing (Braveheart is the big hitta) or Newman (American Beauty, Green Mile, Road to Perdition).

Gesaffelstein is a good un, as well.

Mainly current dance/electronic music. Artists such as Camelphat, M-22, Kokiri, David Guetta, who ever else has any good tracks out. I know that it is said to be bad for revision, but I like the energy boost.

If I want to be a bit more chilled, then I'll listen to some current R&B and rap. Artists such as Ella Mai, NAO, Not3s.

Apparently the best music for revising with is baroque music at low volume and tempo, which I use from time to time (Bach's Lute Suites are good for this).
Sometimes I listen to more orchestral music. Can be distracting though, especially if it's an absolute banger.

Usually some Disney songs because I really like to sing along to them and get all nostalgic whilst doing work. Disney songs also really motivate me. Sometimes I'll also listen to pop or rock (along those lines). Anything that gets me hyped and motivated to work.

Generally something repetitive that will put me in a trance like state. Often Russian Hardbass.
