When I was asked to come up with a list of pieces to help people focus at work or during their admin tasks, I felt so much imposter syndrome! I have to confess that, as a passionate musician, I cannot hear a melody in the background and focus on whatever tasks I am doing.
While writing these words, I am actively not listening to any of those pieces of music on the playlist that I've curated. My mind would go straight away into humming the melody along, enjoying the phrasing of the artist or maybe even identifying a chord in the harmony… However, I did a selection of some of my favourite pieces that I believe people would enjoy in the background of their daily tasks.
All these pieces have 3 things in common: an endless melody, a gorgeous harmony, and a slow tempo.
