Music as tool for brainstorming; ten links at youtube

Music provides some excellent opportunities to stimulate people to use their imagination and gain deeper thoughts. Especially during brainstorm sessions when people think individually, music can create atmospheres of phantasy or help you to imagine you are in a different environment (forest, sea, travelling etc....). Hereby some instrumental music I am using for brainstorm sessions.

Classical music
1. Beethoven/ Moonlight Sonata (in a rain and a storm)/ 6.19 minutes
2. Mahler / Symphony 5 / performed by Berliner Philarmoniker - Herbert von Karajan/ 7.54 minutes

Meditation music
3. Meditation / 7.13 minutes

Music related to nature
4. Oshoites/ close to nature/ performed by Ishan Khera/ 7.50 minutes

Celtic Music
5. Simon and Garfunkul / Scarborough Fair (instrumental)/ - 3.26 minutes
6. Kyrie / Le Baiser Dernier - 5.16 minutes
7. Lorenzo / Erotica - 9.48 minutes

Italian Music
8. Laura Pausini / Instrumental Tra te e il mare / 3.53 minutes

Modern symfonic music
9. Alan Parsons project/ Time machine - instrumental/ 3.41 minutes
10. Rene Dupéré/ Alegria / 5.32 minutes.
