music to create to

Paradise II Homage a Matisse © Maud Guilfoyle
I once heard a show about the kinds of music creatives listen to.
People who work with words tended to prefer instrumental music and visual artists often listened to talk shows and vocal music.
I find that when I am at the beginning of a piece and am working out the composition and ideas that vocal input is distracting. Once a painting is underway I can listen to ideas or words of others. Recently I listen to the composer Helen Jane Long and found her work on itunes. Wonderful sounds to create by.
