I almost never listen to music while doing anything remotely creative. At the most I have been (mis)using music to mask unpleasurable side noises which were beyond my control.... Even than it will be music with as little brain stirring as possible, say something like Brian Eno... I know people who seem to be able to do work which needs concentration whilst at the same time enjoying background music; I just can’t except with very mechanical jobs and I am fine with that. I actually love silence and feel that there is often too little of it in today‘s world. While I am at it I feel there are quite a few people who use background music to mask their own inner noisy mind („high priest“ mode on).
