A new artist e-book based on my collection of Titles, titled "Untitled".
Titles can exert a big influence on how ideas grow and develop from a conceptual basis--other times they are added to complete an idea, or to add one where one was needed. Sometimes artists want to avoid suggesting anything specific and use 'untitled' or something generic like 'abstract painting', as Gerhard Richter has frequently done. (If something is to remain pristinely abstract, one wouldn't want to introduce or suggest possible meanings.)
Titles have different effects depending on the medium: art and sometimes photography do not require titles but I have always added them. Music always needs a title in all genres except classical, where "Symphony No. 3 in C Minor" is sufficient, with each movement named for its tempo marking, as more of a formal 'category' rather than a title per se.

As to music, lots of semi-finished pieces that I intend on collecting into another album.
