Music does more than help me write. It can be the difference when it comes to what I want to write, how I write it, and if I finish it at all. Within Temptation's Hydra album pushed me to finish Flight to Eternity. I listened to a lot of Christophe Beck and Doro during the writing of Like Dark Minds. The Battlestar Galactica score is one I frequently turn to.
Lately, while I let the rough drafts for Eternal Power and Oceanborn settle in my mind, I've been working on a science fiction story that doesn't have a name yet. I abandoned it for a while but found myself newly inspired after a random YouTube search for epic orchestrations.
I found a guy named Arn Andersson who has created music that fits this story perfectly. It's completely reshaped my approach and has allowed me to outline the second and third books in the series as well. While it's on my mind, I wanted to share his stuff as a thank you for providing it to the world.
You can check him out on Bandcamp or YouTube. Hope you like it as much as I do.
