Solo piano recommendations.
April 7, 2011 8:02 PM Subscribe
I've found my ideal music for reading and studying - Ryuichi Sakamoto's solo piano albums (BTTB
and Playing the Piano
). The pieces are unobtrusive and calming, and there aren't too many elements that draw my attention away from what I should be doing. Yet they're also melodic and carefully composed, not just ambient tones. Draws me into that certain headspace that is conducive to reading and focusing. Where do I find more music like it?

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
I also find myself drawn to the piano versions of Final Fantasy soundtracks, e.g. To Zanarkand
I usually find my music through the Pitchforks and indie blogs of the world, but they won't recommend me anything like this. So I turn to you, MetaFilter.
