Hope you’re still willing to help me out with the chorus for my rap. 😀 I probably won’t be able to finish it within the deadline, but I’ve made a placeholder for it. You can sing the notes of the chorus pretty much the way you want, but you need to follow my lead when it comes to beat/rhythm/stress, as I have to mix together several vocal tracks.
Whoo hoo!!! And I think there are 4-5 more coming. 😀
Congrats on yours!!!
I just went back to the 1000 HP song and see the new dune buggy photo - that is perfect!
Hey man, thanks for the messages, yeah, Video Scoring is a big ambition of mine, so that's really really awesome to hear!
I really dug what you did. What I recorded was not in my wheelhouse but I totally had fun. But what struck me most (and what I don't think of anymore) is can my next take be better than the last? For the first 30-40 minutes of recording I flubbed something or another and the answer was an easy 'yes'. When I had a take that sounded decent that's when I was like, do I gamble or do I stick with it? I gambled a few times and then called it done (my left hand had a say in it as well). I like being reminded of how easy we have it now with digital. But there's that aura of tape that can't be replicated.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment on John Madison.
Thanks! Though I must caution - when you listen to that track on proper speakers, just keep in mind that the song was mixed on laptop speakers. However, if you find the bass end isn't working for you, please let me know! I'll adjust the mix accordingly. (Likewise, if the bass sounds just right on bigger speakers, let me know as well, if you could. It'd be useful to know!)
Thanks for listening and your kind comments on “Free To Go Mr. Low”. Glad you enjoyed the track.
Yup there's multiple time sigs. I counted it out as 9, so 4 and 5 is correct! Later on it alternates between 4/4 and 7/8. I guess I just can't sit still!
Crap, I've got to get my analog brain on from the mid 2000s! And thanks. I look forward to it!
Thanks for your comments on "Who Knows the Rain"!
Thanks for the love on Stay. The chorus harmonies, and some of the choral voices, were made with the plugin you gave me. Thank you so much! It's a great tool.
If you can't make out the whispers then I mixed it just right! And the song is called Piano Bench because it's reflecting on an interaction that involved a piano bench being thrown across the room (which out of context sounds like a *way* worse situation than it actually was).
thanks for your comment on "Writer's Block" The song is for a musical I am trying to draft this month about a small town band. Its my first attempt at a musical!
Thank you for the feedback on "Lorelei." Always appreciate the kind words.
Hey! I was really touched you mentioned Edison on the recommendations thread. I really genuinely like what I’ve heard of your stuff as well. Are you at all interested in doing a collaboration?
Thanks for the compliment for Kalesi! It was a rough one to put together so I'm happy you like it 😀 Keep up the good work yourself.
Thanks for commenting on the song "The Art of Socialism" - I've posted the lyrics from Barbara's page now. Enjoy!!
I do love everything Moog!
Hey there *waves*
It looks like you’re doing really well!
Back later for some listening 😀
No worries, elesimo! These kinds of collabs are always full of surprises, and rolling with them is part of the fun.
Looking forward to 4-track collaborating with you!
(and thanks for the stickers, nice touch, good thought)
I just wanted to check. It sounds super dark and a little weird on “normal” speed. But I wanted to check with you and not make any assumptions!
So whoever gets it next will have to have the high-speed option, which will not be a problem, I think.
Hey there! I got a cassette in the mail from you. Listening now.
Was it recorded at high speed? I can do either, and it sounds better at high speed I think.
If it is actually a high-speed recording we'll just have to pass it on to someone else who has a high-speed deck
Interesting idea. I'm more inclined to the additive, than the subtractive method myself, but it'll be interesting to see how it works. Have a good fawm too, I'll look forward to hearing your black midi music, don't forget the hashtag.
Hello, I played with the idea of creating a midi instrumental using loads of notes today. No piano though. My maximum was 745 in one bar, so I didn't get anywhere near a million. It was interesting. The method I used was closer to the patterns of minimalist music, rather than random chaos. Listening to a few black midi tracks, that seems to be what they do too. I can't post that for fawm, it was a day too early, but I might try another one.
On the subject of black midis and infinite piano - I just found out my 12 year old non-verbal autistic son is a long time fan of both - and watches infinite piano videos on his ipad constantly. I didn't know what he was watching - now you've educated me and it's given me another way to communicate with him. Thank you! 😀 😀 😀 😀
Hey there! Just listened to your song Story and it is really beautiful!! Happy FAWM!
Now you're gonna make me plug in the linux box - I shoved it in the corner and threw a blanket over it. I guess I should give it another try. Thank you.
que massa que tás aprendendo um instrumento brasileiro aí na gringa, hahahahaha. quem sabe a gente não faz uma collab nesse FAWM? eu gostaria bastante!
yaaaaay! de onde você é aqui no Brasil? e eu acho música de fusão sempre potencialmente maravilhosa, vá em frente com essa idéia. beijosss!
hyia there, fellow queer! looking forward to experience your creations, loving your influence list. let's do this!

Again, many thanks for your generous gift.
Nice influences! You're my new musical fascination.
Hey! My account there is under email@example.com. I think that should let you find me. Thanks a ton!
Just commenting. I think I have all the plugins I need!
Alright...I'm all set. My email is guatecoop and it is at gmail. Thank you for throwing that out there!!

Hey there - I don't think I got your address yet for the 4-tracks. zecoop at yahoo 😀
Hi, Roberto, my friend. I'm sorry I haven't been in touch lately. The entire second half of 2017 was non-stop exhausting and stressful (NON-STOP, for real!). But I look forward to checking in at some point this month to see how you are doing and to cheer you on!!
