Utterly fascinated by Coffitivity
I listen to music all the time at work. I carry three iPhones (don't ask) and 2 iPod Classics with me most days to ensure I have *the* right soundtrack at any given moment. Whilst my preference is for longform Ambient music and mixes ... I have been known to listen to Death Metal and the sounds of frogs to aid concentration and give me a wee *something* to keep me motivated.
With this in mind, I approach Coffitivity with utter fascination ... coffeehouse sounds that interplay with your music to make you *feel* you are in an actual cafe.
According to Coffitivity ... the mix of calm and commotion in an environment like a coffee house is proven to be just what you need to get those creative juices flowing.
I have tried it ... and I did think it helped. It certainly reminded me of the times I have worked from Starbucks or Beanscene. It was a pleasant and welcome reminder. Give it a go for yourself ... its free and plays from the off so you don't even need to start it up.
