As someone who dabbles with the Art of sound I.E - making music. I feel it's key to keep the imagination active with the right kind of ingredients.
Now of course good quality imaginative music is on the top of my list.Also I find film which uses music to set scenes,moods or simply has lots of artistic content helps to water the seeds of my imagination .
Recently I've been getting into Anime films http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime
what other media,music,film,art etc do people use to nurture the artistic flow?.
