Here’s my lazy man post for the day (since I’ve been writing my thesis for the most part and haven’t had time to write anything else). Normally when writing I loathe a quiet room but I can’t really listen to music because it’s distracting; instead I throw on a movie that I’ve seen a million times and just let it run, maintaining a low drone in the background. Lately it’s been Blade Runner, a film I feel is one of the best science fiction films of the 20th century (followed only by Verhoeven’s science fiction trinity and possibly Escape From New York). While I’ve been paying little attention to the dialogue, the music by Vangelis is a great writing soundtrack. I know it’s hypocritical since I don’t like listening to actual LP’s or CD’s while writing, but the music from Blade Runner is working very well.
In honor of Vangelis’ contribution to my academic progress, here’s my favorite part of his score. Enjoy and have a good weekend.
