We had 19 participants (myself included) in this series, and I'm grateful to them all for their time and their insights, and for sharing their music.
So, because I'm a geek for analysis, here's a wee bit:
- 37% use the soundtracks/playlists they noted to actually write their stories to
- 63% use their soundtracks/playlists to get inspired, but can only write in silence, or to some other kind of music
The most common bands across the soundtracks were:
- Bruce Springsteen (3)
- Nine Inch Nails (3)
- Sigur Ros (3)
- The Clash (2)
- Apocalyptica (2)
- Radiohead (2)
- Tori Amos (2)
- Jeff Buckley (2)
I hope those of you who have been following along have had as much fun as I have. It's been fantastic to be exposed to so many new bands, and I'm very grateful to all of the authors who participated!
If you haven't had a chance, do take a few minutes to peruse the websites of the authors who have participated in this series; their websites are all listed off to the right.
