Music to lose yourself to

Music is amazing.
We've all felt it, and It's been proven scientifically, (I guess that means a bunch of people with a degree made some officially recognised experiments or something) that music helps concentration and productivity.

When I draw, or write, or daydream I love having a soundtrack to support me. And the few times I've managed to achieve the fabled Flow state have happened when I found myself totally immersed in the moment semi-hypnotised by the music.
It takes a while to happen, and I have to be in a 'letting go' mood.
That's why, for me, the longer the track the better.

I listen to a very broad range of music, all depends on the state of mind.
I've found great accompaniments in some Pink Floyd's pieces like 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond' as well as with some of their earlier more psychedelic work.
And some great guitar classics like Jimi Hendrix's

Preferably the less lyrics, the more instrumental or guitar solo, the better.

But at times I'm in a more mellow mood, slower tempos like some trip-hop work wonders.

love that album.

Here's Hans Zimmer's already classic go-to instrumental piece, a great background when trying to focus.

Forget labels and genres, anyone else got some great music you like to immerse yourself into, to share?

Ooo I've only listened to a couple minutes so far, but I'm gonna give this a lot more attention when I have some better time.

Stuff like this is good, really chill out edm.
Also a big fan of melodic death metal, but very picky (only listen to certain bands with certain influences)

This would be an example of what I consider to be the epitome of metal and guitarwork. The lyrics are incredible, written first as poems.

Ah yes, tool, definitely something to delve into when I'm in darker moods, great for painting black

have to agree with you on some of Pink Floyd's music, myself, I'd have to add Wagner at times, but Always Tool, so easy to zone with a lot of their music
