1 thought on “FOR READERS AND WRITERS: Do We Need Playlists?”

  1. As a teenager, I associated Karunesh’s ‘Dawnlight’ with the vampire Armand. I doubt Anne Rice ever did so. Nor would most people, considering the title. ‘Dawnlight’ evoked beauty, stillness, and a dreamlike atmosphere, all of which I associated with Armand. I still think of him whenever I hear this piece. ‘Shadow to Light’ by Amethystium was playing in my imagination when I wrote the very beginning of ‘Waiting for Rebirth’. I still associate ‘Shadow to Light’ with Damian/Christopher. Other people may hear completely different music in their imagination when they read about my boys. Once I posted about Damian/Christoper, they stopped being my boys entirely. They became a part of the imagination of everyone who reads about them, taking on new life there. As they are reborn in other people’s minds, other music will spring up in association with them. Just as ‘Dawnlight’ became connected with Armand in my mind when I read ‘The Vampire Lestat’ and ‘Queen of the Damned’.
