Soundtracks that give visions...

A lot of writers will compile soundtracks to go with their work - music which somehow connects with what they are creating, which helps them with the vision in their minds.

For me, "inspirational" music of this nature has always been (a) instrumental and (b) emotional and (c) in some way sweeping (often but not ALWAYS orchestral)

My CD collection, in fact, Collapse )

Music paints pictures in my head, I experience a lot of it very visually, and I can close my eyes and "see" it - a literal soundtrack, with images unfolding in my mind as though I really was watching a movie. And after that it's just a matter of writing it down...

What images does music bring up in your own mind? The pieces I chose, or your own...?
