What music do you listen to (with tea)?

Postby bagua7 » Aug 27th, '10, 05:27

I guess there is always a piece that one really enjoys while having a cup of tea or even after, as tea helps to settle our Qi.

Today I enjoyed listening to Chopin's Funeral March after my evening green tea session, longjing in this case. Interesting balance between the two.

You can listen to it in here:

you can convert it to mp3 using this site:
http://www.video2mp3.net/
(mp3 sound may not be the best but very convenient)

I enjoy the Etudes by Cortot, you can find and download a 1933 recording on archive.org:
http://www.archive.org/search.php?query ... pe%3Aaudio
(other recordings featured on this page)

archive.org is a great site

lots of great classical pieces & opera can be found on youtube, apparently a bunch of amateurs uploading there!

That is a great site for classical music.

I've been listening to The Orb while sipping Dragonwell today.

I like both classical and pop/rap music. I particularly like the song “Only Exception” by paramore. It’s my fav!!! Hahaha :D
Here is the music video for it.

For some reason, much to my wife's exasperation, I never get tired of listening to this album while sipping my greens...

I haven't gotten into Komiya's other albums... but something about this one just hits the perfect chord.

I listen to many kinds of music depending on my mood!

I´m a DJ and I specialize in Industrial music and EBM but I tend not to listen to them that much when I´m not DJing or preparing for my weekly set.

Lately I´ve been listening to dubstep and ambient/tribal industrial when I´ve just been playing albums to listen to casually...here´s a couple of my recent favourites :)

Skream - Dutch Flowerz

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYbjen1P1nk

and

Geomatic - White Hole, Dark Soul

I listened to both for about 30 sec, The Skream I didn't like. But Geomatic was ok... for background music. :D

Do you arrange the music at home and just take a
Thumb Drive to work?

30s is just the song intro would be better to listen the whole song ;)

I use my laptop with my whole music library in mp3´s...sometimes I pre-arrange a set or parts of a set but when I do that I need to be prepared to throw that out the window and change it around while I´m playing if the listeners aren´t getting into it. Usually I do all of the arranging and mixing while the audience is listening with the exception of a few songs I picked to be my intro. The crowd is not the same every week so having a playlist set in stone is a really bad idea.
