This post is more as a memo for me to remember how much easier doing work can be with noise cancelling headphones and some music.
I tend to go for more avant-garde stuff e.g. Aphex Twin, 808 State. Something loopy and percussive does the trick.
It really does help with focus and immersion… Once I get settled. The Focus Beats playlists on BBC iPlayer seem to put me in a trance.
I thanked ‘techno’ and the manufacturers of my noise cancelling headphones in my M.Ed thesis acjnowledgement.
I got a distinction so I guess it was a technique that worked!
