    I listen to all kinds of stuff. Everything from Franz Liszt to Creedence Clearwater Revival to Arch Enemy

    I enjoy listening to alternative & classic rock. Including Led Zeppelin.

    My music collection is way too diverse... right now I'm doing work (not mapping) to Underworld's "Second Toughest in the Infants" and yesterday it was Tool's "Aenema"

    I don't really listen to music while I'm mapping. Usually, I'm watching something online, such as on Hulu or Youtube.

    BÖC! I could hardly concentrate on work while listen to them... They make me holding my pens at the top and transform my wacom and everything I can find into a drum set :-D

    As to the music I prefer:
    If I am working on details, I never listen to music.
    But for the initial ideas and major layouting, style, colour changes, etc. I usually chose a genre/band/artist harmonising with the mood I try to create.

    I can prise it off the paper,

    Agreed, that is a serious danger! It's a hazard i'm willing to brave though!
    I'll admit lately I've switched to Alan Parson's Project though. I Robot, Stereotomy, Turn of a Friendly Card, Ammonia Avenue.. The older stuff.
    (yes! I'm working on a map right now, and not the new york one either.. I'll be checking with the client soon to see about posting WIP's..)

    That's a good choice though - I could listen to 'The Raven' for hours ;-)

    Well, while mapping I enjoy some norwegian "quasi-jazz" like Jan Garbarek or Nils Petter Molvær.

    But I could also listen to the non-lyric songs of artists like Nine Inch Nails or VAST. Despite their reputation, they can make very moody and atmospheric songs which enhance my world-envisioning capabilities.
