I posed a question earlier…
“Do you let music dictate your mood or your mood dictate your music?”
It’s an interesting one as I sometimes want music to a) inspire me – when training for example – the right tune can definitely impact the velocity I feel in an opening lift. Other times I know that setting the mood in preparation for meditation or a chill out can work wonders.
There is certainly a difference in atmosphere when you have some classical background as opposed to heavy rock! I get through so many different genres of music in one day it’s difficult to state one that I prefer – It depends upon atmosphere I seeking to either embrace or seek.
Then there’s those occasions where song can surprise and take you on a journey you didn’t expect – isn’t that beauty of it all though, you don’t quite know where it end up or create for you?
