In the past, I have used different soundtracks to help me focus on the feeling of a story scene. It has also helped me expand on story detail when I let my imagination work with a song I feel suits one of my ideas.
I have used and would recommend the soundtrack from the video game Bioshock. As well, of recent, I have been inspired by Esmerine's "La Lechuza" album.
What tracks have inspired you?
