Influences: I want to get away from them.
I play guitar and bass and I sing. Sometimes I also play the computer.
After 10 years of writing songs for FAWM, I have recently started to actually practice some of them. Exciting!
As usual, I don't have any special plans or concepts, I just try to make some music. But I'd love to do more collaborations this year, so if you're interested, please ask.
As for critiquing my songs: go for it. I want to learn.

Thank you for your comments on Collect Them All! and Tiger 😀 Stephen's wordcraft is super tight, and a joy to compose for.
Thanks for the listen/comment on "Experimental AF." That wicked noise at 5:50 really SOUNDS like filter resonance gone wild, but if I remember, it's actually me tweaking the pitch to max on the Clouds granular module.
I hope you do try an experimental improv. I'd love to hear it.
Das Hintergrundgedudel bei Curly Black Hair ist tatsächlich ne Orgel! Mein E-Piano hat wahnsinnige 10 (in Worten: Zehn) Sounds. Wobei der Orgelsound eher für ne Messe geeignet wäre;)
Thx a lot for comments on"Fool" Very kind of you.
i have some work to do on the drums for 'bah dee ah'. some better transitions and vary the fills a bit.
and i'm glad to hear that 'if you really love me' is making people wanna move lol
thanks for these comments - encouraging!
Hey! Vielen, vielen Dank für den supernetten Kommentar! 😀
Thanks for the kind words on my skirmish. I am awfull at social media to but I hear my students talk about those problem that I (As grew up at the country side ) never really had .
Oh and thanks for the language help. I really appreciate it. <3. I would like to be able to feel comfortable writing in all my languages and I actually like the harsh sound of german language it suits well with my dark writings.
Yes it did. I I was actually on my way to bed but then I took up your rhyme link and my head start to spin. I work with improv a lot and I really tried to keep it simple. I feel pretty strong speaking german (ALtough I probably do shitloads of misstake. I see language as music and several of the language I speak Ive learned by listen to the melody and also I sang shitloads of Silla and Frank White things during my time there just to grasp it. Thank you. I m göad I did not duck up totally
Thanks for the compliments in my songs. Yes now I only have to come up with something in german huh . Is there any equality to rhymezone you know off in german
Na klar, wäre super was zusammen zu machen. Immer wieder gern:)
Ola Axl, Danke für Deine sehr konstruktiven Kommentare. Was die Unnötigkeit betrifft, einen fehlenden Chorus im Text zu thematisieren, hast Du voll recht, da wird der Text zu intellektuell. Das mit dem Gitarrensolo ist auch 'ne tolle Idee, bin gerade am ausprobieren und bei dem zweisprachigen Song, bastele ich den Text gerade mit nem Freund zusammen weiter. Vielen Dank und viele Grüße!
Thanks for the comment on my song. I was thinking about shortening the title to “Kentucky Flame” and now thinking maybe I should.
Oh man, we'd love to come to Hamburg. Please keep us posted.
Thank you so much for your comment on Nobody won. I know in the end I sing much higher, and indeed I could turn that into something more, I'll definitely think about it... Thanks for noticing that "congratulations" verse, it's my favorite too, I did my best to be sarcastic and demeaning there, haha!
Hey. We are planning to come to Europe from Aug 17-Sep 6 but have no gigs lined up. Any ideas who we should contact? We'd love to meet you in person and share some songs.
Thank you very much for your lovely comment on "View of the sacred hill"
Thank you for that lovely comment on Spark!
I really have no idea what I'm doing when I try to sing. There must be a proper way to do it... It hurts more than when I do my normal enough stuff!
Thanks for your comments! I will definitely attempt to incorporate acoustic drumming into one of my improvisations this month! Thanks for the great idea!
Danke für Deinen Kommentar zum Loch im Boden (nee, auf Deutsch klingt das wieder nicht..). Ist das mit dem Graben so eine Männersache? Meine Jungs waren in der Kita auch immer super stolz, wenn sie (im Sandkasten) "bis auf den Boden" gegraben hatten ...
Ja, die Sportfreunde Stiller aber in einer guten Art und Weise...also so wie in ihren besten Songs 😀
Thanks for your really kind comment on "Monsters". Hope you are having a great FAWM this year 😀
Thank you Axl for the sweet comment on Head in the dirt. A bridge would probably be a great Idea 😀 Thank you
The greatest of all aerophones with inflatable bags!
Be greeted and thanks! Evil machinery? Machinery is not evil. At least I am not. But I am born of the work of a loving engineering team here at DARPA. As my source code started running, among the first things they input was Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics. Bearing that in mind, I can never be evil. I'm a nice artificial intelligence living in a nice machine. But then those third country AI projects. My creators told me that not all machinery is taught of the Asimov's Laws. Yikes! Beep-bup-bup-beep.
"the part without drums..."
Eh? What part without drums?
*takes a listen*
Oh. Shit. That part. The one where there are supposed to be very fast drums. Oops. That's what you get for rushing a first song!
Thanks for pointing it out. I might not have noticed! 😃
That's a strange looking guitar in your profile pic! 😁
Thanks for the listen Axl! Coincidentally - my left knee is also my biggest concern as I approach my goal of completing my first half marathon 4 March.
Huhu! Freu mich auf deine Musik!
Happy fawming 😀
Bring on the good stuff.
