Music feeds inspiration, drives creativity, and is an essential part of our lives. Most of us listen to music throughout our day while working, relaxing, or spending time with friends. Although it is mostly seen as entertainment, music has always been a part of the human experience. It is our companion through good times and an aide through more difficult times.
Music is also known to be a great tool for motivation. We use it to reach flow, a mental state in which we are completely focused on a chosen activity, also known as “in the zone”.
As adults we have a more difficult time attaining our flow state, due to all the wonderful distractions we encounter every day.
On the other hand, kids access their flow effortlessly, it's natural for them to think and create freely.
During any creative activity, we aim to access our flow state as quickly as possible so that we can produce our best work. Curating a playlist for a certain activity or mood can get us to our peak performance in a relatively short amount of time. It also keeps our flow uninterrupted by removing the guesswork in choosing what song to play next.
PLAYLIST YOUR LIFE
Kompas Creative has our very own music curator, Ali Watson, who puts great care and effort into creating each volume of the Kompas Mixtapes.
Ali has been in a serious relationship with music since the tape deck days, when she used to create her own mixtapes by recording songs from the radio. Music has always been her favorite way to connect with people.
Dedicated and passionate about seeking out new music, she compiles it into playlists for any situation. Her mixes are tailored to motivate you during a long day at the office or inspire you to express your creative side. She develops each soundtrack to create flow and transform any ordinary experience into a more memorable one.
Music reflects the dynamics of real life: the hardships, growth, and accomplishments we face each day. Each volume of the Kompas Mixtape was created to help get us "in the zone" and be the soundtrack for our experiences at Kompas.
Sharing is Caring
We wanted to share our archive of Kompas Mixtapes and hope that they motivate, inspire, and help you find a creative flow. Although if our playlists aren’t really your style, we encourage you to create your own.
Music gives us creative inspiration. All we need is to find the music that keeps our minds on track.
