Soundwork: Don Campbell's "The Power and Sound of Music"

Excellent progress on my novel this week. I find that the kind of music I listen to makes a profound difference in my ability to quickly get into the "trance" for writing fiction. What definitely does not work: rock and roll, jazz, most opera, and anything loud. What does work: quiet, drifty, minor key... I'm still developing a vocabulary to talk about this... I've been listening to Don Campbell's fascinating 4 CD set, "The Wisdom and Power of Music." On the CDs he talks about and gives examples of music that enhances health, creativity and communication.(For my previous post on Soundwork, click here.)
