10 Classical Albums to Listen to While Studying or Writing
Whenever I want to sit down and write in a space for creativity, my first choice is, almost always, Philip Glass' The Hours soundtrack. It's an album with so much repetition of ideas but with such stunning variations, it creates this overall composition that just sucks me in, puts me in another headspace, and allows me to forget all the other crap going on in my life. I don't have to worry about bills; I don't have to worry if my car is going to start when I leave the library; I don't have to worry about anything else but the work in front of me. It's truly a poetic album, and it was written by one of the world's best composers with a unique and unforgettable style. For me, there is no better album for the mind, for being in the moment, than Philip Glass' The Hours. Just listen and let the music speak for itself.
