What I’m Listening To: Lullatone

I don’t often listen to music when I do design work. Depending on the task at hand, I sometimes find it distracting. However, lately I have been engaged in some tasks that don’t require a great deal of concentration, and was happy to have recently discovered the music of Lullatone through the wonderful SwissMiss email newsletter. The most recent edition featured a link to a marvelous web app called Patatap. Created by Shawn and Yoshimi of Lullatone and programmer Jono Brandel, it’s a soundboard of sorts, allowing you to make music (or just noise, in my case) by typing at your keyboard.

And check out some of Lullatone’s music. It’s soothing and upbeat and innocent – just what I need in these uncertain times to ground me and keep me focused.
