I re-discovered music a while ago, and now listen to music while on long training runs (and, so far, during one race). It’s been an exciting journey, as it’s meant getting to know old favourites again, as well as coming across entirely new composers and musicians.
My current playlist is a mix of minimalist, ambient, and drone. Here’s what’s on my iPod right now…
Rainbow in Curved Air
Les Yeux Fermes
Persian Surgery Dervishes
Ambient Music 1: Music for Airports
Ambient Music 2: The Plateaux of Mirrors
Ambient Music 3: Day of Radiance
Ambient Music 4: On Land
The Shutov Assembly
Stars of the Lid
Those of you who are used to having music (and iPods) in your lives will have to forgive me for this enthusiasm. It’s been a very long dry spell, and I’m really glad it’s over.
