Dennis and I talked about what we look for in music. As happens often, I finally could mouth my thoughts through conversation. Music rarely achieves a quality of silence. Since I listen to music a lot when I write or work on the computer, I want it to be
a) very good
b) gentle, soft, melodic
c) not too dominant -
It has to allow my concentration to stay on its on peak, instead of trying to catch my attention, as is at least part of the goal for most creative work that wants to be sold.
