Yesterday I got up at 4:00am to fly to Seattle for the holidays. It being one of the busiest times of the year, the airport was jam packed and chaotic. When I was finally settled on the plane and off the ground I cued up Boards of Canada on my iPod to drown out the sound around me.
Within a few minutes I could feel the travel stress melting away as if the music was programming my brain to relax and empty the trash. Anyone else have any particular music that they listen to when traveling? Brian Eno perhaps? Debussy? How about the opposite extremes? Speed metal or drum n bass?
