Sometimes all you need is the repetition.
I’ve written about this several times on the playlist - about the psychology of music - about expectation and dopamine and audio hacking and all those things that make music an effective tool for getting shit done, particularly in the creative writing space - and while that’s all nice - at the end of the day, who cares how it works - it’s whether it does or not that matters.
This is the second Yellow6 track on the list - the first one is very much in the same space - Custom - added back in 2017 - if you dug that track - you’re going to dig this one.
It’s all hypnotic guitars, loops and drones, coming together to create an ever growing stimulus that never pushes too far yet never backs off into monotony. And sure - some people might find it too one note but I love this stuff. I’ve been A / B ing it alongside different instrumental tracks and it’s always this one that I find my fingers flowing more readily and for longer.
Coming in at over 14 minutes - it’s also the perfect track for popping on repeat - three passes of this and you’ve been writing for 40 minutes and I promise you, you won’t know where the time went - except of course for those tell tale black marks on the screen in front of you.
Definitely worth taking out for a spin.
About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
As the founder of musicto I’m on a mission to inspire a global audience of music lovers and artists through the development of people powered playlists.
