pairing playlists

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips on creating playlists? i really want to organize my itunes library, but i wouldn't know where to begin.

Begin by searching for a constant. A reason to string songs together. A theme. Does a particular set of songs evoke a specific emotion? Do they remind you of a body of water? A sentence whispered in your ear at a shy hour? Your grandmother’s hands?
Is your playlist a response to something? Is it a howl in the night? Does your playlist ask a question or answer one?
Think of your playlist as a story: Is it told in a linear fashion, or does it wind and snake like a mountain road? Does it break like a conversation? Does it reach a climax? Is there a resolution?…

A few ideas: pair your playlist with a visual (a photograph, an art piece…) or a line from a poem that you find particularly intriguing, aim for your tracks to melt into one another (unless the juxtaposition is meaningful), insert a reading of a poem or the sounds of a creek or dialogue or a theatrical instrumental piece as your first track to set a mood…
