The IT Music

By Wiseguytr ·
Unlike field techs, we mostly spend our days and nights in front of screens and keyboards.

Whilst trying to boost our concentration and productivity, alot of us listen to different sorts of music to actually medidate deep into it, try to be more exact and careful.

Its believed that alot of people actually can concentrate more while listening to music while doing their IT work.

So what sort of music do you listen to while you are deep into it ?

While I am deep into it

by santeewelding In reply to The IT Music

Music is a distraction.

While I am deep into music, heart and soul, all else is a distraction.

I prefer metal to calm me

by Slayer_ In reply to The IT Music

I always enjoy a bit of metal core while I am programming, I find it helps to drown out the voices in my head.

That is the reason...

by Wiseguytr In reply to I prefer metal to calm me

This is the actual reason why I started discussion. I used to listen to all kinds of music while I work, but not metal. Matter of fact I saw great boost while listening to hard rock or metal..

IT "unlike field techs"?

by NickNielsen In reply to The IT Music

As a field tech, I consider what you do to be systems, not technology: IS, not IT. But that's just a personal opinion.

The blues. Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Howling Wolf, Eric Clapton, Billie Holiday, Tinsley Ellis, Koko Taylor, Gary Moore, John Mayall, Sippy Wallace, Tampa Red, Albert King, Aretha, BB King, Popa Chubby, old, new, Delta, Chicago, Kansas City, English, electric, acoustic, you name it, I like it.

What I meant by that is they are mostly on the move, unlike us live and rot on your seats..
