I enjoy many genres of music and can't get through the day without listening to tunes and tracks to keep me going. I've been playing on the bodhran for a few years now and still have a long way to go before I master the sound of the drum, but I'm enjoying the journey. I'm playing the bodhran for part of Terra Nova's new production of Shakespeare's The Tempest, and it's thrilling to be involved, but I still plan to keep practicing.
Music I live for listening to includes anime scores for Akira, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Avatar, and loads more. If I fall in love with an animated film I fall in love with the music as well. I'm a big fan of ambient music, music that's perfect for chilling out to. Tangerine Dream, Koan, Carbon Based Lifeforms or the Epicuros series - that's the type of music I listen to when I'm drawing or inking.
Here's some video links to bands from the Belfast music scene and music that I love to listen to while working on art or rehearsing for plays. I'll put a link to a bodhran solo one of these days.
