anemogram. The Playlist

Music. I think most of anemogram was written in silence, the first draft the result of a month of fierce commitment to it and no time for much else. When I did step away from the screen the writing was shaped by the music I listened to whilst trying to go blank, or attempting to figure out where I was headed. That music does not feature on this playlist for the most part. Instead these are tracks discovered after completion that reflect the feel of the book. Most have no strong melody, are unobtrusive and serve to compliment. Music was at the core of my thinking as I progressed, essential to the underlying construction I ended up with. I worked with defined movements in mind, inspired by the waxing and waning, and rhythm, of longer musical pieces. This helped me reach for my destination and keep to the right tones. It didn’t feel right to put out anemogram without acknowledging the importance of this aspect, so the result is this playlist.
