Music is one of those things that I cannot live without. A day without music is a bad day indeed. I try to prevent this from happening as much as possible. Music acts as a conductor, allowing me to explore my thoughts and emotions, offering different perspectives and insights. It is a drug. A good drug. A drug for all feelings.

My listening habits are schizophrenic. One second I will play some Coltrane, then queue up a bit of Godflesh and go directly into A Tribe Called Quest. Yeah, I am weird like that. But I do not think I am alone.

What I would like to do with this section of my blog is to explore some of the background music that I listen to when I am working on photos or thinking about photography.

I will start off with Jesu (funny that I mentioned Godflesh, this is Justin Broadrick‘s more mellow project). When I started thinking about going analog, I was listening to Pale Sketches on constant repeat. Pinhole photography really forces you to slow down your methodology and Jesu forces you to slow down, period.

The force of their music is strong and demands your immediate attention, but in a downtempo, dreamy post-pop droning sort of way. When they divert into darker territories, Jesu does this strategically with structured layers and beautiful moody progressions.

I guess what I am getting at is that they are part of my everyday thinking. I completely relate to their sound and overall artistic direction. Check out the video I embedded and share your thoughts, would love to know what you think!
