Day 6: What band or musician is most important to you?

I can’t really answer that firmly. Music is very important to me in general. I love a variety of music. I just cannot sit down and say ‘this is my favorite band or musician in particular’. There is just was too much that moves me.
Slipknot and Stone Sour are a top-lister when I am in a mood. Cory Taylor’s vocals can be so harsh, yet in the next verse, so subtle and smooth. The man is wonderfully talented.
However, when I write, and want to set a mood, I create playlists. I don’t really like the distraction of vocals when I write, so I have a great love of Original Motion Picture Scores. ‘The Fountain’ is a favorite. Some of my top list composers/conductors are Clint Mansell, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, M83, Ramin Djawadi…and well, several others. I am also lulled by the wondrous vocals of Lisa Gerrard. And Greame Revells work on The Crow and The Crow: City of Angels was stunning.
I love classical music as well. I would have to say my top list on that would be Vivaldi’s The Four Season, with Summer as my top choice.
