On the Nature of Daylight - Max Richter


Music is always playing in the background while we work, but certain songs are carefully curated for the design process. This is one of the songs that allows me to close my eyes, stop what I'm doing, and just breathe.  

Oftentimes I will do this on repeat until I feel content.  The effect is incredible; when I open my eyes and get back to designing, the energy that was compressed during those several moments is released through my pen and onto the sheet of paper.  An idea is born.  

You may recognize this song from the movie, "Arrival" and then recognize how a single song can wholly impact not just a scene but an entire film.
