What role does music play in your day-to-day life as a creative?

When starting with a project I tend to study and make sketches in silence. But in the next phase, when I’m actually producing things, it’s nice to have some music on. Music doesn’t directly influence the shape of my actual work, it functions more as an accommodator for me working. Putting on some music is like creating a space. Sometimes you feel like working in a bright, colourful room, sometimes you want to work on the sofa. Similar spaces can be provided by certain songs.

Tell us about your playlist:

I selected a bunch of songs I’ve been playing over and over again the last few months. Some songs are already years in my library, others are a recent obsession. It’s been fun to come up with a certain order, which song comes where?
