    Does anyone here listen to music while creating a new mockup? I've heard that different music genres can bring out variations in your creativity...

    I definitely agree.

    Listening to certain songs can bring out different emotions in a person, and if someone is being creative, their emotions will be reflected in the resulting design!

    I try to listen to ambient, deep house, and jazz when i'm developing sites, or designing. Anything that has a non-instrusive sound (where it doesn't distract me too much, but still sounds good). I also try to have a nice variety of artists. I'll go to shoutcast.com and listen to some stations in various genres on there.

    I totally listen to music while working. I usually listen to techie stuff like Polish Ambassador, Digitalism, and Chromeo but mix it up to Expendables every now and again when i need some guitar action. But i usually don't use it to entice creativity but rather to make tedious work more bearable. but im a web designer so i don't usually have to get too insane with my graphic design.

    But yea, (good) techno is awesome for web designing cuz it's very technical and systematic while creating beautiful harmonies and rhythms, in much the same way, all that technical back end crap in web design works together to make a beautiful work of art. sorta the same. well if you consider web sites works of art. Lots of ppl dont... I like to. well some of em anyways... like mine. hahaha.

    I bounce from their new rock stations, to the old 70's stuff, keeps it balanced

    I sometimes listen to music when coding, but I can't really concentrate if it has words.

    When doing web design or writing, I listen to music as well and can handle the distraction of words.

    I can only work in college so I can't listen to music :(( I have headphones that work occasionally though. If I had my own computer I'd definetly listen to music though. I just discovered Prick so his album is on a loop on my mp3 player :p Prick, Ministry and NIN, I'm having an Industrial phase :p Oh and some Primus and Queens of the stone age and LCD Soundsystem thrown in there to mix things up!

    It definetly helps me work/study in general!

    I listen to alot of pink floyd and laid back music like that when designing. I actually just got the David Gilmour CD's and am listening to them currently.

    I listen to music almost every time I start a new design/graphic. I can listen to anything pretty much...techno, rock/metal, rap...whatever. :D

    When I build websites, I usually have the tv on as well and glance back and forth.

    I definitely agree. While I'm listening to the music, I have so many extra-ordinary ideas and bulk of energy.
