    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).

    Yes, I usually use slow piano music, in the speakers. They boost my tolerance during study. Headphones and other kinds of music are not welcome.

    Very true indeed. Monkey mind don't shut up easily...I thought that was a good thing to soothe it.

    Personally and anecdotally, I find music with vocals (or at least, vocals in languages that I can understand) to be much more distracting/engaging than other kinds of music. So more ambient or soundtrack type stuff while I'm studying/working seems to help, with the odd vocal track slipped in every 30 minutes or so to make sure I haven't completely fallen asleep works for me.
