The Mind Expanding Multi Genre-playlist on Spotify is my ever growing playlist containing soon over 100 hours of hand picked high-quality music (not whole albums without consideration) from a wide range of genres from all times in my life; rock of all kinds, complex music, simplistic music, pop, avant-garde etc… (Since some people can’t stand really hard music there also is a softer version of the same list here). This list indicates that I’m a music nerd; for me music is more than a casual thing; it’s deeply connected – in various ways – to many important things…
In this context this playlist is part of my creative methodology. How? If you play this list using the shuffle function, the jumps between genres, time periods and energy levels can be experienced as a bit brutal – but that’s the purpose! It’s an exercise for the brain! Before this list I had an tendency to listen very intense to a few artist in periods and it could take years or even decades since the last time I listened to favourites from earlier periods in my life. This list is a cure for that narrow minded mechanism! I also have the feeling that this ”provoking method” actually seems to activate the communication between different areas of the brain which practically means you increase creativity and also the capacity to accept huge mental shifts. In short a playlist for boosting creativity and energy levels! You are welcome to check it out and subscribe.
