I am one of those writers who doesn't work in silence. Right now as I type this I am listening to one of my musical highlights of the year, The Last Night of the Proms, and loving this. If there is one form of writing I will always admire because I know I can never do it, it is the ability to write music - both lyrics and melody. I sing along too. I carry a tune reasonably well but nowhere as near as well as the BBC singers!
So what role does music play in your fiction? Can it be used as code? A certain type of music is accepted, anything else is banned? When a certain type of music is played, the government is about to perform certain actions and this is their way of warning people?
