Since Lambert opened a thread which let me know it's ok to post on any topic here.....

Can anyone recommend music (I use it for background and to help me shift modes when I write):

1. Haunting music (not scary-haunting but that soul wrenching stuff as though you're standing at the edge of a void). Lyrics aren't that important for this one. This is for a long piece on fragile aspects of people.

2. Psychotic music, with and without lyrics. The scratch your nails on a chalkboard type, and really fring type stuff that some stations ban. This is for a long piece on psychopaths.

Thanks!

Let's see if I can help with the latter.

Insane Clown Posse: Bloody *****, Sleepwalker, Night Of The Axe, Jacobs Word.

Twiztid: Green Pumpkins, Maniac Killa, Lef' Field.

Yo Yo Ma does the void in the soul music as well as anyone.

For pure unbridaled anger, NOTHING beats early Slayer. ;)

Why ray, you refined devil you.

You have good taste in music my friend. :)

I'd add Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata to that list. True it is overused, but it is still one of the great compositions of all time.

Snipe,

One has to have some tastes. I like classical music, both Western and Indian.

I also am a great fan of the Beatles and Pink Floyd. Add Abba but not Mike Jackson except the song about the whale.

I also like the Blues, jazz and country music, the hilly billy stuff.

Music is as per the mood.

Can't say I'm in the know about "void in the soul". But would Nusrat Ali Khan and Norah Jones count?

Pink floyd is food for the soul.

LOVE the guitar work of Roger Waters.

It just makes a connection with me at the core of who i am.

Nusrat Ali Khan - just listened to this artist on amazon. Nice!

Clannad is an example of the more type of haunting music I'm looking for, and some old monk-choir hymns (can't think of the term); celtic is good as well.

The term you are looking for is "Gregorian Chant". ;)
