For quite a while, I have been searching for the optimal programming accompaniment music. I can’t listen to the normal music that i usually listen to, because I start listening to it and stop paying attention. I have read that multitasking only works when using separate parts of the brain, so my theory is that programming and listening to some music use the same part of the brain.
My search for good programming music finally found something today. LiquidFM Trance channel. Its fantastic. I barely notice it at all. It fills my head, but lets me focus. I highly recommend it -Â http://www.liquid.fm.
