Music that works best for immersive tasks:
- Familiar music, so your brain doesn’t look ahead for what’s next.
- Classical music, especially Baroque-period pieces for productivity boosts and no lyrics.
- Electronica and its repetitive sounds as a way to increase focus.
- Video game soundtracks, which are created to be atmospheric, but not distracting.
- Quiet music of any kind can provide background noise without disrupting focus.
