To celebrate the launch of “The Art of Forgetting : Nomad” and the completion of the duology, I’ve put up the full soundtrack to both volumes of Art of Forgetting on Spotify, so you can hear the tunes running through my creative brain while I was writing and editing – I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve found Spotify really handy for finding music to write to, I’ve got lots of film soundtracks on there because I can’t listen to music with words when I write, or I find myself listening to those words and not concentrating on the words I should be writing.
Full tracklisting is as follows, see if you can spot which songs fit with which scenes or characters!
