In 2015, I wrote Gravity Wing.
This year I release the final novel and album (have a look at my Indiegogo site: http://igg.me/at/gravity-wing/x it's all very nifty, I promise!)
I'll be doing something different for FAWM 2017. It's actually a Gravity Wing tie-in. Listen for New Canada Engines . . .
The tuba players are always astounded. 🎼🎷
Most graduates in any University music program can pay the upgrade price for lessons from me, whereas I promise to call 911 and help keep them safe after they try and play for 1 minute on the pipes. Instead of point and laugh. 😂
Cute. It actually takes the better part of 1-2 years before you can really even begin to start playing a real set of pipes... 😮🎶🎶
Epic AND badass!! Wow, looks like I hit it out of the park!! 😉
Ello there, thanks for the comment. The drums are actually just samples I snipped out of the Amen break and played around with on my sequencer, rather than a synth. I wish I had some recommendations, but I don't to use drum synths much. Sorry that's not a tremendous amount of help!
Rather low, as it turns out. B below bass clef but for musical purposes, I usually stop at the D. ( might have been a rhetorical question but you asked!) The Road is so Long was a fun chance to play with my lower vocal range.
Thank you sooo much for the awesome comment on 'Loser Lover'. You could tell I was just having too much fun singing that one right? Thanks for the compliment on my voice too. Cheers girl! x
Thank you so much for the kind words on Seconds. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂 I can totally hear the cafe sound now that you mentioned it haha. So you used to live in the city?
Cheers Clio! It was a fun and interesting project for a day off!
Thanks, Clio! Episode One was a beast to create. We're happy with the result though. Learned a bunch. Thanks for the enthusiasm. Episode Two is up...
Hey thanks! Yes, 5/4 it is 😀
Thanks Clio... "KISS" method whenever possible!! Keep It Simple... (Stupid) 😉
That's one of my Irish whistles, Clio... I love the sound as well, but have to admit it is not my "main" instrument... I like to dabble with it...
This alphabet project is intended for my kids and nieces/nephews. As you can tell, I'm having a ridiculous amount of fun making it. I try to be a great dad... I fail a lot, but I try. 😀
I'm so glad you liked, "Cross Country Friends." Thanks so much for your comments. I am definitely coming back to that one. 😀 And yes, I loved your idea for a female vocal doubling on the chorus. I will do that.
Kids have insight alright 😀 I know of the pop filter issue... but I'm really pressed for time this FAWM so most of my recordings will be of appalling quality 😞 But this is way too fun to just hold up songs until a chance to properly record them 😝
mail just went off... have good evening.
Thank you for your short but really amazing comment on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Beeps"! It made my day, or night in this case. Thank you!
Well, I have 4 songs in the hopper, so I guess I'm kinda up to 14/15 right now but I have to record some of them yet. 😉 I just like working quickly -- FAWM as sketchpad -- and so people get to see me at my raw form here. I have no doubt that some of this year's pieces are keepers, which makes me hugely happy.
am doing fine clio, thx for askin'. let's meet for coffee, now that we are 4 in th city who are faming... cheers
"Hidden Figures" is a good film, but it's a better book. The author's father worked at Langley and she started asking questions about his stories, and eventually got to meet the women at the center of the story. It's a longer and richer story.
Thank you so much for your kind words about "I Dream of Green Hills"! And I'm so glad to see you're up and running now. Have a wonderful FAWM!
I hear that, I'm sick so not off to the best start, we'll get some momentum I hope!
Speaking of great pipes, hello Clio!! 😉
Glad you're back this year! Look forward t o hearing what you come up with this time around.
Not cynical, "realistic." 😉

Hello! I hope you have a great time.
I have returned, but this is going to be a very stripped down FAWM for me, compared to normal.
I hope you're well 😀
Yay! Hi there! Are you familiar with filk at all, if you're into sci-fi/fantasy music? If not, google it. It can be a beautiful thing. <3 Looking forward to seeing what you cook up, too.
