I only have one rule for the Essay Writing list - actually - you know what - that’s bullshit - I have absolutely no rules at all for this list. What I do have is general guidelines. Rules - while good for society - tend to homogenize playlists and I’m looking to make this thing as disparate and accessible as possible!
The idea that got me started though - was that I’ve gotten lost to every track on this list.
When I say “lost” what I mean is that, at some point while listening to the tracks on this list, I have achieved a state of creative flow.
To me - to this list - to anybody who’s looking to facilitate their act of creation - flow is the goal - is nirvana - is the holy grail of creative states.
Right now I just pulled out and stopped typing, I have no idea where I am in the track - I can’t remember when it started or when it ended - I of course have it on repeat - I’m familiar with the core loop - 4 bars built around 2 notes - 2 notes! music’s simple! ;-p
I’m going back in now - now that I’ve written the above - which I’ll edit later (actually doing that right now!) - but yeah - that’s what this music can do - it can help you write - if you let it!
Def 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.
I’ve been fascinated by music ever since.
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.
