Track of the Day: 'Homeless Wanderer' by Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

A two-parter from reader Kevin Gibbons:

When I am working on websites or doing data-related work, I like electronic music that keeps up my work pace and helps me keep on the anti-distraction blinders. Here’s a good example: “Walking with Elephants” by Ten Walls.

When I’m doing work that requires reading, I love piano music. This album by Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou is perfect for me because of its winding, elegant stumble.“Homeless Wanderer” is a great track if you need one.

The YouTube version embedded above is a mashup of that track and this compilation of snippets from nearly 400 films released in 2013. Watching the mashup isn’t great for getting work done, but it’s a great mental health break for cinephiles like myself.
