Chasing Andromeda 6


Mansfield USA   Jan 2010  

Artist Bio

Influences:   First one I remember...Sly and the Family Stone Since then, in no particular order...David Byrne, Prokofiev, Adrian Belew, Devo, Todd Rundgren, Keith Jarrett, Carlos Santana, Bjork, Jaco Pastorius, The Clash, David Holsinger, Thelonious Monk, Ravel, George Clinton, Jean-Luc Ponty, Miles Davis, Bill Chase, Portishead, Chick Corea Those are probably the most significant and the most obvious in my music.

Michael Michalski, a.k.a. Chasing Andromeda here. I, I am never quite sure what is going to come out of my head. If I hear it, I write it. It usually has synths in it and it often has quite a few layers to it. But it might not have either.

Enjoy and have a great February!

2018 Goals
Some synthesizers will be heard...or not.

I am looking for some collaboration opportunities. Along with the usual array of soft synths and effects, I have added a bunch of hardware over the last couple of years and it all wants to be used.

Takemine Electro-Acoustic Guitar
Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Strat
Ibanez Hollowbody
Hofner Ignition Club Bass
Nord Lead A1r
Behringer Deepmind12
Novation Bass Station II
Waldorf Blofeld
Roland SE-02
Banjo Ukulele
Lots of sample libraries (orchestral and unusual)
Lots of hand percussion

All just waiting to be used. Hit me up!

Have a great month and thanks for visiting!

UPDATE - Work is getting in the way as it usually does....but, I am good with all the collaborations to which I have committed.

What is going to change is how I address my solo stuff. I am going to limit myself to three hours to produce something. What I have at the end of three hours gets posted. This should be fun.

    No worries. I have had my hands full with work and have not had the time I would really like to spend this FAWM. If need be, post a placeholder and put it up later. Cheers!

  • @musicsongwriter 2 weeks

    Hi Michael, yes, even if you are sending it in March we can post it then 😀

  • @solarrainuk  3 weeks

    Thanks Michael, no worries about catching up, I'm trying to catch up with others too!

  • @bking  5 weeks

    Michael, if you have a mix, rough is ok, render it (any format will do), zip it, and either email it as an attachment or post it on your web server and email the link. The email link on my profile page is still valid. When I am done, I'll render my tracks as WAV files, post them on my web server and I'll send back links.

  • @engebretsen  5 weeks

    thx for comments on Three of Wands. Very kind of you.

  • @musicsongwriter 5 weeks

    Hi Michael, thank you, just sent my file via your email, google drive.

  • @musicsongwriter 5 weeks

    Hi Michael, yes please, it will be wonderful to collaborate with you.
    Please let me know if you would like me to send you MP3 or wav.
    Thank you.

  • @musicsongwriter 5 weeks

    Thank you Michael for listening, commenting and sharing your thoughts on my instrumental piece. I stupidly didn't save the original fl studio file yesterday so any adding will be hard at my end... I too would love to hear more instruments there.

  • @candle 6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on The Field, Michæl! I'll be by soon to listen to your track. I'm trying to catch up on my replies.

    See You In The Shadows…

    Thanks for the comment! Nope, nothing to do with the Ben Folds song - just some random nonsense. 😀 It was a last minute lyric change when I realised that I was about to sing a very uncomplimentary song about a fellow FAWMer...

  • @djrhodyn 6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on Starlight Shower! Percussion is one of my weaknesses so i kind of tested myself. Once fawm is done ill probably improve it.

  • @solarrainuk  6 weeks

    Well I'd say if you ever think about getting an Elektron box, the Digitakt is a great entry. I've also owned the Analog Four and RYTM but recently sold them as I found I didn't use them much. The Digitakt is so much easier and quicker to get to grips with, much more immediate and fun to use!

  • @solarrainuk  6 weeks

    Thanks Michael, glad you liked my first modular piece for FAWM. It's quite difficult to create enough structure and variation to keep it interesting, the Digitakt certainly helped with that!

  • @audiarec 6 weeks

    I'm going to give it a go!

  • @theawkwardsleep 6 weeks

    We are back, but we'll likely have a late start. excited to see what you are doing too.

  • @mikegtz  6 weeks

    Hey, Michael, welcome back.

  • @complexissimple 6 weeks

    I'm so sorry. I had multiple tabs open and must have clicked on the wrong one.

  • @solarrainuk  6 weeks

    @chasingandromeda Hey Michael. Yep, I'm back again! Maybe trying some eurorack noodling this time around. Good luck with FAWM, interested to see what you do with the new gear there!

  • @mikedebenham  6 weeks

    Great to see you back, Michael! Looking forward to some banjolele synth magic.

  • @petra777  7 weeks

    *waves* Hope a handful of us FAWMers can catch up when you are on this end! Keep me posted if anything materializes....

  • @complexissimple 7 weeks

    Since you asked, I have a variety of songs posted at 50/90 and SoundCloud, but I'll link you to a few you might find particularly interesting.

    Watercolor on Stone gets pretty close to the bottom of my range, and there's a note near the end of What Are You Afraid Of that's pretty close to the top. In both cases I can comfortably sing a step further, and maybe go a little further than that if I push myself but it won't sound as good, especially on the low end.

  • @robynmackenzie  7 weeks

    Holy crap, EIGHT?!?
    Yes, let's get that fixed! I'll be a little busy at the beginning of the month since my first term of grad school ends on the 11th. But after that I plan to be here as much as possible!

  • @thetau  7 weeks

    Hey! Droppin' by to say hi... Good to see you here again

    Have a good FAWM!

  • @candle 7 weeks

    Hey! Great to hear from you, And yes, I plan on FAWMing this year. I look forward to hearing anything you do this February. And yes…

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @radioovermoscow 7 weeks

  • @rahkoi 7 weeks

    Cheers. I'll... try to be heard from. You have a good one at any rate!

  • @oddbod  7 weeks

    Hey thanks for all the Studio One stuff. I’m sure I’ll be taking the plunge quite soon but probably leave it until after February. Next Fawm I will hopefully be a Studio One user. Have a good one.

  • @looprication  7 weeks

    Hey hey! I'm sure gonna try, brother. I need this more than ever. Good to hear from ya.

  • @tawny249 7 weeks

    Hey! Hi to you too. 😀 Good luck this year!

  • @bking  7 weeks

    Something electronic that I can add a bit of Strat noise to. I’m open to suggestions.

    Dude! I laughed so hard... you know, I had to Google the term cause SURELY NOBODY MAKES VIKING PORN HOUSE??? Alas.. judging by the sheer amount of results, it seems I am not alone 😞 😞 damn it; so hard to Find something original...

    Oh, my term for it is «pop».. basically the same thing, just more safe for work
