Yeah but i need a pattern at background. Beats makes me easy to get focus in code. Light music is like noise, have lot of detail and I need to listen it "carefully". Triphop, hiphop and e-music creates some rythmic atmosphere that is like the lines of the code matching.
It seems that we can't code in the same room (without earphones) xD
Although I can listen to music all day when I'm modeling/photoshopping/etc. I've found that I can't really code while listening to music. That's just me. I have done it a few times and its worked okay, but its mostly been light acoustic/instrumental stuff with minimally involved coding. Interestingly enough when I was doing my thesis on architecture and music, I couldn't even listen to the music I was writing all my scripts for. But then again, Schoenburg and Stravinsky are a little intense...
Not really the original theme of the post... But very related, coding and wiring, there are differences, sure... but at the end, at one level or another, shouldn't be the same..?
Ok, to the point:
for coding... can't tell (I'm not such a writer yet...)
for wiring... I love tekno, from minimal to more hard beats... I love the energy that evoques while geometry changes and grows RealTime... Maybe realtime "coding" (sorry guys, let me say it that way) enables the use of more "disturbing" and "motivating" sounds (music).
