Music you listen to when mapping

Recommended Posts

2016-2018 CT is GOAT. The show sucks ass now though and anyone that still donates to their Patreon in current year has way too low of standards.

Hadn't heard of either of those podcasts, I looked them up. Skipped around a TMG highlight compilation and it seemed kinda boring, like it was just two rich-kid zoomers talking to each other. Any particular episode that might change my mind? Chip Chipperson has a little more potential but I think Norton is an interesting enough personality on his own, I don't need him to do a character. I am going to finish out this episode at least because I crush on Natalie Cuomo.

I hadn't really listened to music much while mapping, but for my attempt at PUSS XV, I put this album stream video on.

I just listen to midis that I liked from other wads. Struggle, momento mori, ribbiks midis and such.

I always listen to either my big playlist, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, some tiny post punk band that no one's ever heard of before or recordings of Michael Parenti lectures.

I usually listen to video game music from stages that loosely inspired the map I'm making.

But whenever I'm not listening to game music, I'm listening to a lot of music I've learned to love over the years.

I just click whatever's in my history on YouTube or fire up a list on Spotify. Most of the tracks these days include Friday Night Funkin' songs, a bit of Starset and Breaking Benjamin, or other nerdcore stuff, just something that fills the void of silence. If I have homework to do and I don't feel like I can mentally focus on one thing, I'll usually play a video from my assignment in the background and subconsciously take notes. I have yet to make a level inspired by any of said homework assignments, but I've still got a few years in university to consider the idea 😅

2Pac, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, etc etc. Classic rap, mostly west coast stuff. Not much of my playlist was made in the new millennium.

I'll usually put on SuperMegaCast or GDC videos on in the background, but when I listen to music, it's usually music that I'm thinking about using for the map midis, and usually listen to daily anyways, usually punk or grunge. Stuff like Alice in Chains, Nine Inch Nails, Green Day or Nirvana among other stuff.

Tom Waits puts me in a mood when mapping

I generally just listen to whatever it is I feel like listening to - often indie rock or folk these days. If I’m specifically turning something on help my mood when mapping it’s either various Doom midis or the nuDoom soundtracks.

Mostly something relaxing, like ambient tracks of literally anything on youtube.

But I usually prefer podcasts in the background.

Mostly listen to Jazz music, mostly stuff similar to Pat Metheny. It keeps me calm when I have trouble trying to do a map trick.

I usually have the music for the map I'm making playing, when I eventually get tired of listening to the same thing over and over

I turn on video game music.
